Setting up two computers with one monitor?

I currently have a PC, and am buying a Mac Mini. Since there are a lot of things that I will still need my old PC for, I have decided to keep it.
What I would like to know is whether this set up will work:
First of all, I would like to share files between the computers with an Ethernet cable. Then they should both be controllable with one keyboard and mouse. For that I will be using Synergy, a free program that lets you do that without special hardware.
The computers will also have to work with one monitor. The monitor has both a VGA and DVI port, I was thinking that each computer could be connected to one port. (PC -> VGA, Mac -> DVI)
Will this work? Also, if it will, is there any way to use both computers at the same time by splitting the monitor with some program?
