Excellent thinking, Paul and others who have signed up. I'm not
currently using my Mini right now, but it serves as an excellent Back-
up for everything I'm doing. To save me some time, is there a way
that I can just hook the Mac Mini up to my Intel Mac as an external
hard drive? Maybe with a Firewird cable? Right now I have to
transfer stuff to an external drive which is connected, then boot up
the Mini and transfer stuff again. I don't have any of my Macs
Networked for security reasons and my piece of mind. (smile)
