I have one PC that I want to be able to use in two separate places in the same room. So one PC, and two sets of keyboard video and mice. two stations are about 20 ft apart from each other.

Is it possible for a kvm switch to do the inverse function they normally do? Instead of two PC's and one set of K, V, & M, its once pc and two sets of K, V, & M?

 
You cannot use a KVM switch backwards.

Wireless K & M or perhaps USB combined with a switch box for the monitor or if flat screen, switch inputs. Not very elegant, but I do not know of a single button solution.

Hm... I see.

What about having the GFX card output to two monitors with mirrored output. It would just have to be a rather long VGA cable.

And one wired k&m and one wireless k&m at the remote station?

Think that would work?

Minicom's KVMS Extender Kit 0DT50002A might be solution. plug video, keyboard, mouse (ps/2) into the transmitter unit. you can extend away from the computer via Cat5 and then have KVM control at the receiver. The transmitter unit also has local KVM out, so you can control from either end. http://www.minicom.com/kvm_kvms.htm
