    I'm uncomfortable disturbing my network settings, considering the time I've spent trying to re-establish them.


    What about the remaining option: Firewire ?


    The eMac uses a FW400 connector and the iMac a FW800 connector .


    How do you feel about migrating the files using Migration Assistant?


    I would start-up the donor computer while holding down "T", if I understand correctly.


    That would produce a target disk image of the eMac, on my iMac?


    Beyond that I would need to follow what MA instructs.


    Now I need to find a FW800 cable and a FW800 to FW400 adapter.

    Yes, get a FW400->FW800 cable, put the eMac in Target mode, & MA will be a great way to do it!
