I have a number of computers but only one monitor.  Is there a multi-switch I could use to switch betewwn computers?

Not enough information with how you intend to set up the computers or how many. But here is a start: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817107212

As a suggestion.

Thanks for your help.  I don't have anything special, just several PC's that I network for storage.  Your suggestion should do the trick.
