Can you do computer to computer transfer via USB? I know you can do this with firewire. The reason I ask is when i get my new emac i dont want to have to spend 30+ bux on a firewire card for my beige (plus a stupid cable). And since i already have usb card on it, a usb to usb transfer would be great. The reason i am doing this, for you curious ones, is because i am going to install 10.1 and 10.2 on my beige and ill have 10.3 on my emac. This will be for my software testing and such. Ill probly also make a partiton on the beige hd for backup of my emac files, so a direct connection would be nice. The only ways I have thought of doing this is a usb to usb transfer, or get a usb zip (which i am going to need anyways, i have tons of things backed on zip, but current drive is scsi). I would use cd-r but dont want to waste that many of them (guess i could always do multi-session burns, although I have had terrible luck with those). And cd-rw....i have had horrible luck with them, they have NEVER worked for me at all (and i've tried several different brands).
