    What's the best and easiest way to move old claris works and text files from a Performa 467 to a PowerBook G4 12"? Disks are'nt working too well for me, and I really don't need to spend any money doing this. Can you help me please???

    I would say, connect to the Internet (dialup?) and FTP them somewhere, or email them to yourself?

    Here's the catch:

    it doesn't have any internet applications.
    What to do now?

    I think disks are perhaps the best way to go, unfortunately. Does it have Ethernet? you could maybe network it to your powerbook.

    or Copy everything onto disk, take it to kinko's and put it in a mac there, burn it to CD?

    What's wrong with copying to a disk? That really seems to be the simplest way to go about this.

    Well, the half of the files won't copy to a disk, stating that there's just an error. But they are all either text or clarris works documents

    Maybe get a brand new disk. Those things always crap out on me.
