hi. without any coordination at all, me and my brother both bought ibooks within 2 weeks. his is a 14 inch though. and weve basically never used mac before. kinda wierd. well anyway, i wanna give him all the music on my ibook (about 8 gigs), but were not networked. actually about 200miles apart. but during spring break, could i just plug the ethernet cable in to both computers and transfer music that way? is that possible, or is there another better way besides making about 15 cd's? thanks a ton. :mac:

Easiest way is to connect your two computers with a firewire cable

Important: Unplug all other FireWire devices from both computers prior to using FireWire target disk mode. Do not plug in any FireWire devices until after you have disconnected the two computers from each other, or have stopped using target disk mode.

Tip: If you will be transferring FileVault-protected home directories (Mac OS X 10.3 or later only), log in as the FileVault-protected user and temporarily turn off FileVault. After transferring home directory contents to the target computer, enable FileVault protection again if desired.

To use FireWire target disk mode
  1. Make sure that the target computer is turned off. If you are using a PowerBook computer or iBook computer as the target computer, you should also plug in its AC power adapter.
  2. Use a FireWire cable (6-pin to 6-pin) to connect the target computer to a host computer. The host computer does not need to be turned off.
  3. Start up the target computer and immediately press and hold down the T key until the FireWire icon appears. The hard disk of the target computer should become available to the host computer and will likely appear on desktop.
  4. When you are finished copying files, drag the target computer's hard disk icon to the Trash or select Put Away from the File menu (Mac OS 9) or Eject from the File menu (Mac OS X).
  5. Press the target computer's power button to turn it off.
  6. Unplug the FireWire cable.
