Run NetBSD. It is much leaner and faster.

Depends on the OS on your PeeCee / Mac machinery. If you have some *ix
(that includes MacOS X) on them you can start a Xserver on the PeeCee /
Mac and export GUI applications from the SPARC to the PeeCee / Mac. No
need for expensive KVM hardware.

If you only want to shere a single keyborad and mouse but run each
machine with its own head there are programms like x2x or Synergy2.
