Hello, I run WinXP and am aspiring to buy a G5...

I have two questions:

(1) Will I be able to use my M$ Optical Desktop Pro (wireless keyboard and wireless mouse) on the MacOSX?

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/mouseandkeyboard/productdetails.aspx?pid=014

(2) What's the best KVM to use, in order, to switch between both operating systems?

(3) The Apple keyboard has a CD Eject button, how would I map that on the M$ Optical Desktop Pro?

With thanks,
 
Sheriff

1) I've never known a mouse not to work with Mac OS X.

2) Never used one so I cannot say.

3) It's usually mapped to F12, but I guess it all depends upon the keyboard.
