    I'm sorry to say, I've just disconnected my G3 powerbook(6/8mths ago), and have removed all pc connections associated with it.

    Firstly, WIN2K had a "kernel" that enabled direct cable or hub connections between it and MAC's (using crossover cable) and the usual TCP/IP settings.

    In WINXP, I believe they omitted this kernel, so software may be the only solution. Thursby software springs to mind, do a search on TSS TALK "DAVE".

    Both machines require an ethernet adapter, configuration of the pc requires you also to ADD Appletalk protocol or client for appletalk networks. I sincerely wish I could remember more, but it's been a donkeys age since then. Good luck.
