    well first of all, if this isnt the right category i apologize or if there has been a thread like this already i apologize aswell...


    but anyways, so my gf gave me this pc, its an HP Pavilion a500n with 512megs, 40gig hd(which i put in, cuz the reason she gave it to me is cuz her 80 gig hd broke and she didnt know how to fix it) it has good ammount of speed and what not, but now...as any other pc, time kills it with viruses, trojans, worms and such other goodies like that, especially POP UPs that pop up every single minute of my life! so...i got my old iMac G3 right next to me, and im starting to miss the no viruses and the whole 'i tell it what to do' thing, not the other way around like as the pc...so im wondering its an iMac G3 DV with 400mhz 323? megs ram and 10 gig hd, but my hd is almost out of space,

    so heres the question...is there anyway i can connect the pc to my mac either via firewire or xxx so i can use the pc hd as an access hd on my mac so i can store w/e on it?...sorta just like a slave computer...the only reason i use the pc is for games and myspace, my mac is used for photoshop, and my other hobbies...so is there a way? either via firewire or w/e? thanks for the help.

    As long as you have the computers connected to the same network, it's quite simple. Follow this guide.
    If your computers aren't networked, it won't be quite as simple...

    is there anyway that i can do it via firewire, cuz networking requires a router and what not, and i dont got cash for that...
