>Ms. V's new toy!

I just love it when people refer to themselves in the third person. :D

Dont' forget to jack up the memory to 320MB.

I realize you are excited. Do you have a giddydrag smilie? :p

Ah, I only wish I had a giddydrag smileV. looks like I'll have to find that 'yay bananna'.
Memory's already @ 320MB but I think you can put up to 512 MB chips in there, but I'm not sure.

I just finished installing OSX on it right now and I'm typing from it yay!

It's not that bad actually, I can still keep most of the eye candy on with decent performance.
I'm going to buy a 40GB 5400 IBM drive to replace the stock 6GB 4200 and keep it as an external.

Now to go explore OSX.......

Ha, thanx Sun Baked.
I've got everything on my PC so until I can figure out how to transfer some files, I'm stuck with what came with OSX, so no smileVs or banannas for awhile.

From OS 10.2 you can easily connect to Windows shares.

Just under the "Go" menu is the "Connect to server" option.

Hit that and type:

smb://<ipaddressofwindowsmachine>

in the address field.

Should come up with a login box and a way to see the windows shares after that.
The one you select just mounts on the desktop ;)

Thanx, but all I have is a USB connection, my PC's ethernet card went out.

Anybody know how to connect them with USB?
