    Alright, I tried searching, maybe not hard enough or maybe it isn't out there. I have a windows XP box on dialup. I have my G4 with no working dialup modem, I 've tried to figure out how to get it working, but nothing seems to work, so whatever. My question is, how do I get these to share files with each other. The windows box has no ethernet port. Dialup only, it's kind of old. Is there anyway to go about this? I guess the easiest thing to do would be to get the modem fixed somehow and throw the windows box in the trash and stop using it forever, haha.

    I dunno, if anyone has any advice, let me know..

    You could just buy a USB memory stick and swap files that way.

    I guess that could work, what I've done with a little bit of the files is I bought a CD-RW and just went back and forth. But after a few times, gets old waiting for files to transfer and discs to erase..
