I have some questions about my new (used) I MAC G4. (800mhz)?
I have just bought this computer and it is the first Apple computer for me. I do have a few questions that someone could help me with:
1.) How do I connect to the internet (wirelessly) I have a router for my WIN XP laptop. But when I try the 'airport' thing and it doesn't seem to find any available connections. It says it has a version 8.70 AirPort card.
2.) When I work on a word processor like MS Word, save it to a flash drive then open that on the IMAC, what will happen? Will it ruin the file or the flash drive?

2) The flash drive will be fine, the file will be fine, if it has Word:Mac/AppleWorks/iWork, you will be able to open read edit and save the file, if it doesnt you may not be able to read the file, but the file itself, and your flashdrive will be 100% fine.

1) Is your WinXP box connected wirelessly? If so, you need the SSID (network name) and WEP or WAP passkey (if your network uses either as secure access)
2) You need compatible versions of Word for both PC and Mac...i.e. don't save a doc in Word 2010 format on the PC and expect the Mac with Word 2004 to open it. BTW - Word 2011 won't work on a PPC Mac, only works on Intel-based Macs.
