    Hi, I have a macbook pro that works great and connects to the internet perfectly. I'm at my moms house and she has a G4 tower, wireless internet, but no airport card. If I had a ethernet running from her tower to my MBP is it possible that I could get her G4 on the internet? Maybe something like target disk mode but target airport mode? haha not too sure.. All help would be appreciated.
    thanks

    Absolutely. Under the sharing preference pane on your MacBook Pro, just enable internet sharing from AirPort to ethernet.
