    Id get an ethernet card personaly, then you can use the machine to do things like stay on irc all day or so... now you say using it for storage, I dunno... I mean its not like that performa has a super huge harddrive.

    There is a solution to this little problem. I've used it myself, and it works pretty well. You need a LocalTalk-to-Ethernet adapter. Just connect one end to your Ethernet network (or Ethernet cable from your newer Mac if you lack a network) and the other end to your LocalTalk network (or just connect the LocalTalk cable from your older Mac to it if you lack a LocalTalk network). The adapter does the translation for you - all you have to do is make sure AppleTalk is turned on at both Macs.
