through appletalk.....i have no clue how to do this

.......anyone know how to do it in relatively

easy to understand terms?

i looked at some tutorials on the net and they seemed

a bit too daunting......i'm looking for a quick whats up...

how do you set it up, and what do you need?

the easiest way is to just burn a cd, fuck networking all together.

 

I spent hours trying to go via an ethernet hub from an ibook to a g4 tower.

 

The best thing ion the world is a firewire CDRW

you'll have to look for the button combo you gotta push, but i know if you take two macs, connect them with a firewire cord, then restart one of them while holding down some specific button, it starts that mac up as being just a HD. it shows up on the desk top of the other mac as removable media. then you can transfer anything you want to and froe. im not sure the button though, so you'll have to look for that.

I think you may have to do something with server/client/privileges.
