I want to salvage the HD contents of an apparently functional PowerBook 5300cs running Mac OS 7.5.5 (the battery is dead, but everything else seems to work). It has a Farallon Ethernet PC Card, and my router has a spare port for it to plug into. But I can't get it working! It has been so long since I tried to do anything like this in anything not OS X-- my already limited skills are quite rusty. I tried configuring using DHCP in the TCP/IP control panel, didn't work. Then I entered IP, subnet, router, etc. manually-- still didn't work. No connection from the laptop, and no green light on my router to indicate that it recognizes that something has connected to it on that port. (The Farallon card also has a green indicator light, which was steady in DHCP mode, and blinked in manual config mode.) Am I missing something obvious? I don't know anything about OS 7 anymore. AppleTalk is active. Optional info below for fellow Mac nerds below, read at your own peril: A couple years ago I rounded up all of the legacy Mac hardware of myself and all of my family, including in-laws to back up all our old crap once and for all. I rounded up the files from a Mac Plus, Mac SE, Performa 6300CD, and PowerBook 5300 (with broken screen, thanks foot). The PowerBook already included the files form my old Quadra 605, RIP. I used AppleTalk (if I remember correctly) to move from the SE and the PowerBook to the Performa. The Plus, with no HD of course, had its Rodime 20MB external HD (case could fit at least 20 iPods) plugged directly into the Performa. From there I moved everything onto Zip 100 disks using a SCSI Zip drive, then loaded everything back onto my old iMac G3 using a USB Zip drive. At least I think that's what I did, the details are fuzzy. I remember I also had a SCSI adapter for the 5300, so maybe I have its and the 6300's role mixed up, but whatever. Shortly thereafter, I got rid of all of this crap in one way or another, except for the Mac Plus which occupies a special place in a box in my garage. (The 5300cs is a friend's.) I always wanted to make it into a fish tank ... Anyway, If I still had any of the old stuff, I'd do something like this again for the 5300cs; alas it is gone. BUT the ethernet card should work, right?
