Power Mac G4 can't run the same OS as your MacBook, 10.6.8, as the latest OS that a Power Mac G4 can use is 10.5.8.
The Finder preferences are in User/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist.

I understand your issue, but the info that you provided is erroneous and does not allow for proper advice.
Once everyone knows what is being dealt with, then maybe help can be provided.
You have to provide correct info to allow correct advice.
Ad-hoc machine naming doesn't help "answer" your question.
Neither machine is a Power Mac nor a G4.
I will ask that the hosts move your thread to a more appropriate forum.
Can someone please tell me what plist or other file
Did you trash the .plist that I showed you?
