I have both my new Mac Pro and my old G4 connected to a cable modem through a router. Can someone tell me (or direct me to a walkthrough) of how I can see my G4's drives on my Mac Pro to transfer files, rather than remove and install drives. Basically, I guess that would be setting up a LAN?

Faster then 100 Mbit. I think you're trying to move files from the old machine to the new one, right?

I've always used the "target" mode to transfer large amount of stuff from one computer to another (as mentioned above). Turn off one computer, connect the two firewire ports with a cable, and turn on the computer while holding the t key. The hard drive of the "target" computer will appear on your desktop.

Yes... thanks... never knew about this option. That is very cool.
