    Intel iMac Memory

    The iMac has 1 1GB Memory stick (It's a new, black and silver Intel iMac 2.0Ghz) -- so if the 2GB is reasonably priced it's probably better than the other 1GB stick?

    Intel iMac Memory

    I recently purchased an Intel iMac with 1GB of RAM. I have since found out that I would like more RAM since the computer slows down with some tasks. I was looking at RAM, and I saw 1GB of RAM for $25 from OWC, but I saw 2GB of RAM for $50. I was wondering if I could install the 2GB of RAM to raise the internal RAM to 3GB. I've heard some people say that 3GB of RAM would actually be slower than 2 GB. Does anyone know if this is true? I'm not sure if it would make a difference. Some people said that the computer would only access the 2GB and leave the 1GB for background tasks. Does anyone know if this is true, and if getting the 2GB of RAM is worth it?

    Printer Sharing Between Mac and PC

    When I install the drivers and run Bonjour it doesn't find any printers. Doesn't Bonjour need 10.4? I only have the iMac that's running 10.3. I haven't found a solution for it yet.
  4. I have an older model iMac (iMac G4 1.25Ghz) with OS 10.3. I have an HP LaserJet 1200 that's connected to my Mac. I have an eMachines PC that's connected to the internet via a Linksys Wireless G router. It runs Windows XP. I want that computer to connect to the HP printer; the only problem is I can't get the eMachines to see the iMac. I turned on File, Windows, and Printer sharing on the Mac but I still can't get it to see it. I tried something that wanted me to use CUPS, but when it wanted me to enter in my password to continue, I put in the admin username (as it shows on the upper right hand corner) and current password but it doesn't work... The tutorial I'm trying to use is here: http://blog.codefront.net/2007/02/05/shari...s-x-to-windows/ Does anyone know what the problem might be and/or another way to get this to work? I tried Bojour but it only works with 10.4... Any help is greately appreciated!! Christian

    Backup PowerBook 520c Via Modem

    Ok, I bought a crossover ethernet cable for both of them, and when they're plugged in... nothing happens. They can't see each other. I go into the chooser on both of them and click on AppleShare and none of them can see the other. The 520c is running 7.5.3 and the Powerbook G3 is running 9.2.1. Can someone tell me how to get the two computers to see each other? I have attached pictures at the bottom. Thanks in advance! http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a3/cgheilman/IMG_0407.jpg http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a3/cgheilman/IMG_0406.jpg http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a3/cgheilman/IMG_0404.jpg

    Do you have a link to where I could buy one? I can't seem to find one. Maybe you can, but I'm having a bit of trouble.

    I have these cables... Here's my setup pictures. http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a3/cgheilman/IMG_0379.jpg http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a3/cgheilman/IMG_0380.jpg http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a3/cgheilman/IMG_0381.jpg I was under the assumption that a standard ethernet cable would send the information over... I might be missing something, I'm not sure.

    Does anyone have a place that they know sells ethernet cables that would work for this? I can't find any when I Google it, and Amazon doesn't seem to have any. If anyone has a link to a cable that I could buy, I would really appreciate it! Thanks

    I'm having a hard time finding the cable you're talking about on eBay, do you (or anyone) know a place that sells this?

    What do you mean? I just have them directly into each other.

    Backup PowerBook 520c Via Modem

    I just recieved the ethernet adapter, and I have both laptops plugged in via ethernet to each other. When I try to connect to one another, it doesn't seem to work. I have file sharing enabled on both computers. The PowerBook 520c has its whole hard drive enabled for file sharing, and the Powerbook G3 has just one folder shared. I looked at Apple help and went into the chooser to look for them, but I couldn't connect to either one. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get them networked? Maybe I'm missing something simple, please let me know! Thanks! Christian

    I've just picked up an ethernet adapter for the Powerbook 520c, and I'll just connect the two, since there shouldn't be any problem. The price for the adapter isn't the problem, all we need to do is get the information off of the computer before it dies, so I ordered that adapter and I'll hopefully get all that stuff off sometime this week! I'll let everyone know how it goes.

    Spike, I won't be able to do it via modem because you need AppleWorks on both computers, which I don't have on the Powerbook 520c, and I can't get the floppy drive to work. I need something that doesn't require any extra software than what 7.5.3 has built into it. Would I need extra software to do it via ethernet?

    Backup PowerBook 520c Via Modem

    Spike, I'll take a look at the modem to modem transfer and see if that can work. The Powerbook 520 only has a dial-up modem, and since the floppy drive doesn't work, it can't copy over an internet browser if I put it on floppy disk (I tried last night) I'll take a look at that modem to modem thing, but if anyone has something else that you know works, let me know! I'd really appreciate it. I have a double-ended ethernet cable that I used with my router. So, what you're saying is that if I got this, I could then transfer my files via ethernet? What would I have to do to get either of my Powerbook to talk to one another so I can copy over the files? Is this http://cgi.ebay.com/Farallon-AAUI-to-RJ45-...VQQcmdZViewItem the item you showed me in your post? I'm looking for a Buy it Now solution so we can back up as fast as we can. Thanks!

    Backup PowerBook 520c Via Modem

    I was wondering if anyone has a browser that will fit onto multiple floppy disks. The PowerBook 520 doesn't have any internet application built-in, and I can't seem to find a floppy disk verson of Netscape, Mozilla, or Internet Explorer I can download. If anyone could help, I'd really appreciate it!
