KVM for MacOSX and WinXP?

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?

(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,

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.
