2 Computers 1 Keyboard and Mouse

I have two computers side by side. I dont know if this is possible but can I somehow make it that the second computers monitor is like a third to my dual already? So I only need on keyboard and mouse to control both.
Thanks,

There are KVM swithces that support 2 monitors, but they can be expensive. There is a program called Synergy that will accomplish what you want without buying any additional hardware.
Here is a link to the programs page: Synergy - Mouse and keyboard sharing software
