    Hello. I used a PowerMac 8500 running System 7.1 ten years ago. Right now, I am using a MacBook Pro running Leopard. I am thinking of getting rid of the old machine. Is there a good way to transfer all the stuffs from the old machine to the MBP? (The PM 8500 does not have usb port.) Can I somehow create something like a virtual PowerMac 8500 so that I can run everything on my MBP?

    You could probably hook it up to a network and transfer everything that way, or depending on how much there is that needs to move you could get an external floppy drive for the Macbook pro and transfer the files that way.
