Need USB 2.0 KVM for keyboard & Mouse

I need to share one keyboard and mouse with two linux boxes.
Both servers don't have any serial ports. I have found a KVM with only two outbound USB ports, meaning one USB to each Linux box. Presumably it will work fine on the PC or on a MAC (so the documentation says), so will the KVM work on my Linux box with this version info:

Linux alpha 2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6xen #1 SMP Sun Mar 4 16:23:59 EST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Effectively the keyboard and mouse are now going to share one USB port.
