    I have this gorgeous 22" ACD that I have plugged into my G5, where I use it quite often. But my intention for the G5 was to be a server, which it is.
    I often need some extra display space when I'm doing school work, or coding, so I was wondering if there is a way that I can use the display, while plugged in to the G5, as an external display for my MBP. Preferably something that I could stream over my local network.

    ScreenRecycler could help, though I never got the Demo to run between my Macs, meaning the image was always garbled.

    What about Screen Sharing?

    I'll give screen recycler a shot.

    ScreenSharing wouldn't help as it just mirrors my current display, I need more screen relestate for when i'm reading in one document and typing in another at the same time, or frequently need to look something up in one document while typing in another.
