You don't need no stinkin LAN. You don't need no stinkin OS or other software.
All you need is a long VGA cord for the screen
and a long USB for the the mouse and keyboard.
You can put the printer on wireless. Maybe you can try the same for the keyboard and mouse.
USB has distance problems. Probably it is best to do this with a USB 3 card. You have to experiment but I would think you could go a fair distance with a USB 3 card driving the link.
Crude and Simple
Newegg sells a 36 foot long Triplite brand USB cord for $40. Looks like it has some kind of repeater in it.

Here is a comment from one happy user:
The longest USB I've Ever Seen
Pros: I needed to snake around my living room to cleanly get my USB keyboard and mouse connected (via a hub) to my PC across this room. This cable did the trick, and saved me lots of headache.
Cons: The midpoint of the cable has a electronic part which is a little bulky. About the size of a champagne cork.
Other Thoughts: Odd that this seems to be the only vendor selling this. I had tried USB-to-cat5 solutions and they weren't reliable in the end.
