Okay, here's a question. Would it be possible to use my eMac as a remote HD via airport extreme? I plan on buying an iMac soon, and rather than upgrading it to the 250GB HD (But I'll probably do ths anyway) would it be possible to drag and drop files over to a remote place on the eMac in the other room?

Sharing

Absolutely. Easy as pie.

Simply enable Personal File Sharing on your eMac, then use the "Network" folder in finder to connect to the eMac. Throw down the username and password from the eMac, and you're golden.

Yeah. I figured this was the way to do it, and I didn't think it'd be too much of a hassle.

I'm just paranoid about HD space all the time. I'm going to absolutely HAVE to order the iMac with the 250GB HD because of this.
