That's why you should use proper computers that:
  a) don't think they're running CP/M;
  b) will talk to a serial port as soon as the power is turned on
and then use a terminal server.

But if you're stuck with obsolete computers, then I suggest using PC
Weasel cards instead of those KVM things.  They're about half the price.
