    I have a 15" Powerbook, and have just had an old mirror-door 867Mhz desktop Mac delivered. Is it possible to use the Powerbook's screen as its monitor? How could I connect the two?

    Allow me this Homer moment: "Mmmmmm... OS9..."

    Not really. You might be able to jury-rig something with an EyeTV product through your USB port, but it won't be ideal and it'll be expensive.

    Great suggestion: thanks for that... but one of my main reasons in buying the dual-boot Mac was to keep it in OS9, and Screen Recycler runs in OSX.
