    I did this before, but it broke my eMac, and not my iBook.
    Well, today I wanted to see how fast of a connection for Shared Internet I would get if I used Firewire instead of the Network cable. So I turned on the sharing on my eMac, and I got out the Firewire cord. I plugged it into the eMac, then into the iBook. The iBook immediately turns off after I plugged in the cable.
    And now it won't turn back on. What do I do?
    It shows no signs of life when I press the button...

    Please help.
    Its the 1.42Ghz G4 eMac
    and the
    700Mhz 14" G3 iBook
