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.
