Thank you for the reply, I know the post was a bit vague to say the least,
if it makes you feel better, the information I got was even more
vague....hehe. At any rate, there is a much easier way to do this, it all
depends on how attached this person it to have monitors, I could setup some
colored lights with proxy switches or something. I saw a few cases where
people have used a Parallel port and a circuit board with relays on it to
operate lights, something like that could work as well.  I guess it really
comes down to how attached the person is to their monitor idea.
