Given how Lion doesn't support AppleTalk anymore, the only feasible way to pass files between my Lion iMac and OS9 eMac is via a FireWire hard drive. I read an article on LowEndMac about how a certain PowerBook was an ideal bridge Mac to connect different Mac OSes, but since I don't use System 7 or 8, I was thinking maybe I can use a G4 Mini running Tiger as my bridge Mac. Thoughts?

You could try FTP.

Also, here's a thread about Lion and classic Macs that eventually gets around to networking:

That actually worked beautifully, albeit with a Leopard machine. Still, thanks a lot.
