Is there any way I can connect an iBook with OS 10.3 to the internet through my iMac with OS 10.4? The iBook does not have a wireless card. The iMac is connected to the internet wirelessly. Is there anyway I can hook a router up to the ethernet port on the iMac and the iBook and connect to the internet?

you can enable internet sharing (airport to ethernet) on the iMac and connect the two together via an ethernet cable. make ethernet your primary port on the iBook and connect via DHCP.

If I'm understanding your set up correctly, you should be able to get online on the iBook by connecting the two computers via ethernet and by switching on Internet Sharing on the iMac, in System Preferences/Sharing/Internet – set it up to share the connection from Airport and to computers using Built-in Ethernet.

I was going to suggest this too.

However, I feel the need to point out that it's spelled weird. OK, I'm done:)
