    Hi, guys. I have 2 computers, both with XP home.
    Is it possible to network the two and still use a KVM switch?
    The only reason for networking them is to share a printer and scanner.
    When I get your answer to this question, I have another, but I don't want to run them all together.
    Thanks in advance.

    It's no problem at all to use a KVM switch on networked machines. Just hook them up, the networking is totally independent of how the keyboard/mouse/monitor is connected. :)

    Thank you Johnwill. I was hoping it would work.
    Now all I have to do is get the network set up. I have read everything I can find about networking and will post some more questions later.
    Thanks again.
