+1 for Raritan... I was very happy with their KVM switches at my last job.

Take a look at Raritan. We use their product to gain remote access to system consoles. No more driving 100s of miles. 
Ok, it would be 200 feet for us.

Speaking of that sort of thing, I'd really LOVE if there were a device about the size of a netbook that could be 
hooked up to otherwise headless machines in colos that would give you keyboard, video & mouse.  i.e. a folding 
netbook shaped VGA monitor with USB keyboard and touchpad.  I know there are folding rackmount versions of this (i.e. 
from Dell), but I want something far more portable.  Twice in the past month, I'd had to drive 
100+ miles to a remote colo and took a full size flat panel monitor and
keyboard with me.  Has anyone actually built this yet?
