    i have a couple iMac G3's
    one of them completely stopped working and it would cost more to fix it than what i paid for them combined. So i started scrapping the broken one. I ran out of space on the one still working so i decided that i wanted to install the hard drive of the broken one as a slave drive to the one still working. Is there any way that i could go about this that is cheap and quite easy. Im not much when it comes to installing hardware. So i would not like a complicated reply.
    Thanks much,
    Robert

    I don't think in those early Imacs that your able to install another hdd. You could by a external firewire enclosure and mount the drive in there.
