    G3 iMac 4X DVD (slot load) problems (678-0232)

    I found and read the excellent slot-loading rebuild guide, but that guide is really for the common problem of the discs not ejecting.

    Moving files from OSX to Mac Plus 6.0.8 via FTP

    Hi all - I've revived a multi-year project to get my Mac Plus online via ethernet (Asante EN/SC) and have finally succeeded in getting it to speak IP natively! I expected it to be relatively easy to move files from the internet onto the machine, by hopping through my OSX laptop, but finding it...
