I _think_ that the best (quickest) way is to use Ethernet cable and 
create a 2 mac network for file transfer. However, I've got 
conflicting information on what sort of cable to use. The iMac 
"User's Guide" says that "you don't need a crossover cable to connect 
to other Ethernet devices." However, the piece of cable that hooks my 
office machine to our LAN (a Cat 5 patch) doesn't seem to do the job 
when I hook the iMac and the G3 together--no files show up on the 

Could it be that the G3 does require a crossover cable?
