Question Split System...help, please.

Hi all,

I was wondering something.

I have a extensive computer which operates a large assembly machine. I have the computer built into a large cabinet which includes the monitor, keyboard, CPU and mouse.

I would like to be able to attach a second monitor, keyboard and mouse about 25 feet away and be able to use it on the same computer. So, the computer, when all is said and done, will have 2 keyboards, 2 mice and two monitors.

What I need to know is how and is this something that can be accomplished? How can I have the computer recognize the two keyboards, mice and monitors and allow them to both be used.

My only concern is how to make it so when one keyboard or mouse is in use, the other cannot be so two people can't mess each other up.

Anyone have a solution to this?

Thank you in advance and I look forward to anyone's assistance.

KVM switch - http://www.newegg.com/store/SubCateg...Tpk=kVM+switch for the mouse and keyboard. I think that will work.

Laptop: Apple MacBook | Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz | 1GB RAM | 80GB HDD | 6x Double-Layer SuperDrive | Intel GMA 950 graphics with 64MB DDR2 SDRAM shared

Desktop: ASRock 4Core-Dual VSTA | E7200 | Radeon HD 2600 Pro | 80GB HDD | 2GB(2x 1GB) DDR2 Kingston ValueRam
