    Really simple, I just got a new eMac. I want to transfer files from my iBook to it. The eMac is running Panther, and the iBook is running Jaguar. I dont have an airport or anything, I am just wanting to use a firewire cable and make a quick network! How is this done? Remember, choosing firewire is not an option on the network port configurations on 10.2! Help!

    An oldschool way is to open up ichat on both machines (different user names on each obviously) and then "send file" - on the same network speeds are blazingly fast!

    Thats a good idea, but both machines would be connected via dial up, and I am sending about 13 gigs of music from the iBook to the eMac, thats why i'm wanting to make a network, but im limited only to FireWire. The iBook running 10.2 is my major hurdle.
