Is ther a way that i can use a eMac as a second screen for my server, over a LAN, or as a primary screen. i tried to use teamviewer, but it only connected me to myself.

You might need a VNC client for that. Set up a VNC server on the server and download a viewer for the emac.

If you run Leopard, then screen sharing is already built in. :)

Just enable it on the host in System Preferences/Sharing, and on the client computer you will see the host in Finder.

OK, im using Tiger Though. Ive been hunting for some Leopard Disks though.

Does anyone have recomendations, im using a ethernet cord to connect them, as i have no wifi.

I have not tried it myself (only the client, Chicken of vnc, many years ago).

Thanks! hopefully i will be able to get my studio display off the top of my vintage desk, and safe into my closet/graveyard/storage area.
