Yup. A Mac file on a peecee disk will show up on the peecee as two
files with the same name. The file with a "." (period) prefix is for
metadata. In Mac OSX a period prefix makes a file invisible. Just
import the files that don't have a "." prefrix.
John, before you go too far, you should check to see if your
iMac will boot into OS9. This is NOT the same as invoking
Classic wthin OSX.
You might also google Myst and OS9 (maybe even X) and see
whether Myst is Classic-compatible.
You don't need anything special. The drive comes with AC adapter and
FW/USB cables. I believe your AlBook can handle FW400/800 and USB-2
connections. Choose a connection. If the drive has only FW400 ports,

It'll probably show up on your desktop...
Not as seamlessly as an iPod. And certainly no iTunes
You'd have to treat the MP3 player as a removeable hard drive and
drag the music from your HD to the player. Depending on the player,
that might or might not screw up its own file system.
Try googling it and see if there are...
Rember (Memtest X) is considered the gold standard for testing
memory. It found a bad stick in Leslye's refurb G5 from Apple
that neither Hardware Test nor TechTool Pro could. Get it here:
Printing the Rember report was all the proof needed to get...
I sit corrected, Me. I relied on MacTracker, which lists "2 serial ports."
I just looked at the G3 manual from Apple's site and the ports are as
you describe. I dropped Ian a note about that little bit of confusion on
It won't show up in an AppleTalk zone. That's for ethernet.
Even the earliest G3 lacks a LocalTalk port. What are you trying
to plug the LocalTalk line into?
The G3 and the NTR have serial ports. Try connecting that way.
The DTOX message refers to the space available on your DVD.
It has nothing to do with your HD.
I suspect DTOX is seeing a purposefully spurious DVD size in
the MTR output. Sony/Disney DVDs are famous for that. Look at
the "movie only" option. Do you have a few titles showing that
