KVM:== Keyboard, Video, Mouse.  The term is usually applied to a switch; 
a KVM Switch allows you to connect one keyboard, mouse, and monitor to 
two or more computers.  You can push buttons on the KVM switch to 
connect to a different computer.  More expensive KVM switches can detect 
a keystroke sequence used to change the connection from one computer to 
another.  A company called "Raritan" makes industrial strength KVMs 
with, I believe, up to twelve or sixteen ports.

At least one company, Belkin, manufactures such things for the SOHO 
market.  I have a four port Belkin KVM switch.  Belkin also offers 
cables for KVMs.
