Hi, and a Warm Welcome to the Power Mac G5 Forum!
The other Mac should be visible in the 'Connect to Server' window that opens after you click on Go > Connect to Server (and browse, if necessary).
And you click on the other computer.
Perhaps something is not set up correctly - or the 'Connect to Server' window is behind other windows - 'help' windows tend to stay on top.
Thanks for the warm welcome. I have just enough computer knowledge to be dangerous. I was not expecting such a speedy response, is nine minutes some sort of record? I think I have established the connection, thanks for that. Shoulder I be able to extract pictures etc from my G5 Aperture program to use in my MacBook Pro Keynote and/or Aperture program using this linkage?
Hi. Better come clean and say that I don't use this route for networking - the LAN here is via a router to Vista & XP... So I can't test your exact set-up.
However, I think Apple are steering the User along a different path for a simple two-Mac, ethernet cable-connected 'network', which is inherently physically secure, to overcome the (deliberate) limitation of OS X that only the 'Public' folder is shared on a potentially 'open' network; see the Admin User-Connect to Server 'workaround' further down the page here
Personally - on this LAN, with 10.4.11, I use(d - see note below) Sharepoints
which enables the sharing of your choice of folders/drives - the User on the networked Mac does not have to be Admin - and then connect in Finder > Go > Network.
Please post again if you have any questions. Good Luck.
Note - Networking is somewhat "different" in 10.5
