I have a G5 running MacOS 10.4 and a very old Win98 Compaq that has a certain sound card required for a piece of Generative Music software by Brian Eno. I have a wireless network at home for the mac, but the PC does not have a wireless card. Can I connect the Mac and the PC via an ethernet crossover cable and control the PC from the Mac?

Is there a social networking site that would be the opposite of myspace.com. It's just a little bubble gum for my taste. I joined flork.com and that is a good one but a bit thin in membership.

Maybe Meta should start a social network....In any event all replies are welcome.

Why is it that whenever I put a dialup profile in Control Panel > Network, Windows sees it as an opportunity to pop up a dialup connection panel whenever (1) I try to connect to a bad domain name or the server isn't responding and (2) I'm already on a DSL connection?

Is there an emulator or something I can use?
