Linux compatible Manhattan 4 Port PS/2 KVM Switch?


i'm looking for a dirt cheap KVM switch solution and came across a deal that looks to good to be true, ie $16.00 for a 4 port switch from a reputable discount house (cables are a modest extra charge). Does anybody have any experience using the switch with linux or know where i can find out if its linux compatible?

"Manhattan 4 Port PS/2 KVM Switch - Shares up to 4 keyboards, mice and monitors with one CPU or vice versa."

in case anyone was wondering, $16.00 and it works great. this is definitely not top quality equipment and you do have to have the switch set to your machine while it boots (no emulating) but it fits my budget.

I just bought the switch from ebay $35 w/cables & wondered if you have any problems with the colors on the monitor changing after switching from one computer to another?
