I have a 486Dx100 running DOS 6.2 and Win 3.1 , athlon 3200 Win 98 and Athlon 4000 Win XP. Would like to hook all 3 up with a 4 port kvm switch with audio. I found 1 switch at New Egg that actually said it supported DOS , but didnt have audio. Will any decent kvm switch work my 486 or do I have to find 1 that says it supports DOS.
Ive e-mailed 2 manufacturers and recieved 1 reply , " I dont know " Thanks for your time :thumbsup: MOPARS FOREVER

I have 3 puters and want to hook all together. They are 486DX100 dos 6.2 and Win 3.1 , Athlon 3200 Win 98 , and Athlon 4000 and Win XP. Can I do this with any 4 port kvm switch , or do I need to find one that "supports DOS" Have looked for 3 days now and have only found 2 that say they support DOS operating system, and only one of those supports audio. :thumbsup: I just want to be able to play some oldfashion Doom and the 20,000 levels ive accumulatedfor the 486 and when i tire of that i'll hot key me to athlon 4000 for Doom 3 :flowers:
Your help will surely be appreciated.

Have you looked at maybe a simple hub instead, or any reason why it wouldn't work?

or just get a standard 4 port kvm and get a audio splitter?
