KVM Over IP Switches..........?

What is the difference between a regular KVM switch and a KVM over IP switch?

From what I've read, the KVM over IP switch enables you to connect to multiple computers (4, 8, ect - instead of your usual 2 with a regular kVM switch), is that correct? Also, instead of using the actual thick and bulky keyboard, monitor, and mouse wires, you are SOLELY using Cat5 wire, is this correct?

So I have one machine running Server 2003 and another running Active Directory in one room, and 2 client machines in another room, I can use the KVM over IP switch, via SOLELY a Cat5 cable, to view all four machines from my one monitor, right? I don't have to run the KVM cable wires with this type of switch, right?

I don't have the space (nor the patience) to run those thick three-in-one wires so if I could use just Cat5 wires, that'd be awesome.

Finally, how does the KVM switch get connected? Does it connect to a port on my switch in my home network? Or does it also ACT as a switch? Thx!

With all due respect, the first answer is totally wrong. KVM over IP switches do not have identical functionality to RDP or logmein. All that a KVM over IP switches does compared to a normal KVM is change the location where the keyboard, mouse, and monitor can be located. Rather than having to, for instance, go down to the server rack, and use the keyboard, mouse, and monitor there, you connect to the KVM via the network and do your work remotely.
Now, if the server is running normally, you can of course just use RDP, or VNC, or logmein or whatever. But, if you want to watch the server reboot, or reboot and go into BIOS config, or basically anything that's happening when the operating system isn't running, any of those software solutions won't work.
You actually brought up a feature that doesn't actually have anything to do with where the KVM works over IP or not. We have a KVM in one of our racks that uses the CAT5 cable from the KVM to the server. There is a dongle of sorts at the server that connects to the video port and to a USB port. You connect a CAT5 cable to that dongle that runs to the KVM. So, the physical connection between the KVM and the server uses a CAT5 cable, but that has nothing to do with how you connect to the KVM. Ours actually is not a KVM over IP. The maximum length of that CAT5 cable depends on which KVM switch you have, but I think ours can go up to 100 ft.
Now, if on top of using CAT5 cables to connect the servers to the switch, you want to connect to the KVM over IP, that's another story. You just need to buy a KVM with that added functionality. At that point, the KVM is just another network node, and just gets attached to your normal network switch like any other computer, printer, etc.
By the way, this won't be cheap, either. An 8-port Belkin KVM switch with the functionality you want is $800 plus $80/server for the interface module.
Going even farther, there are remote access technologies built into servers such as the HP iLO or the Dell DRAC that allow you to not only control the server remotely, but also to phyically power the server off and on.
