Not quite what you asked for, but in some ways nicer as long as you
already have the other box:
 yum install synergy
on the FC5 side; download and install the windows version and
pick one the other keyboard to use all the time.  It will make
the two machines work like one double-headed host and even
cut and paste will work across them.  I run it with 2 monitors
on my desktop and have it configured so when my laptop is
on the network it also connects and is controlled by the
same keyboard/mouse just by moving the mouse pointer off that
side of the center screen.
