    This is probably a very dumb question, but I've never done it before.

    I have two Macs sharing internet over a wireless network, Airport Extreme Basestation. How can I connect these two together so that I can copy files from one to the other over the network? They are an iMac CoreDuo and a Blackbook.

    Start with opening system preferences and sharing. In sharing select the services tab and check personal file sharing. Do that on both Macs.:)

    Not at all.

    You should just need to turn on file sharing in your Sharing Preferences pane, and then use the Go... > Connect to Server... menu item in Finder and type in the address of the shared Mac (as noted at the bottom of the pref pane). Login, and it will be mounted on the desktop.

    Ya know, I was thinking of changing my 'Tar now that the "Swamp Romp in the Desert" is so far in the past, but, dang it, the Gators are back in the Final Four!
