I would recommend you using simple VNC server on Windows machines which you can connect to using default component of KDE, Krdc, which is, as far as I know, compatibile with VNC protocol.

I have several machines on my table: Win2K, WinXP and Linux/KDE. It
would be great if it were possible to control them all with a single
keyboard/mice (or at least with a single keyboard). Each machine has its
own monitor.

For controlling the WinXP machine from the Win2K one I'm using a
modified UltraVNC setup with the display handling disabled, so there is
zero performance overhead. It works very well.

I wonder if there exists something similar for Linux/KDE, so I can type
on all machines with a single keyboard. `synergy' (
http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/ ) would be perfect, but it is very

Recommendations appreciated.
