Default 1 monitor 2 computers

1 monitor 2 computers

I have a friend who is purchasing a new computer w/ WinXP on it.

They have an older computer running Win98.

What is the best way to run both computers off of one monitor?

Swap plugs whenever you change Computers?

They don't sell double plugs because if you accidentally have both working - there will be problems and its likely the monitor will be ruined.

Either that or get two monitors - go to a Boot Sale and get one for about 5?

Well tickle my balls and call me Hirohito. I never knew they made them!

Got your answer then, eh?
