Unfortunately, just better VGA cables, better KVM or a lower-frequency
video refresh rate.  If you're running 85 Hz, go down to 72 or 70.
One reason I like the Belkin SOHO KVMs is that they come with really
good cables.

Ida know.  The manual and online support don't say?  Definitely
something to pester Linksys about.  The color thing, too.
