    Noob Home Network?

    I just bought a new iMac G5 17" and was wondering how I might be able to connect it or "network" it to my brothers iMac G4. All we wont to do is play some games of Warcraft, we live in the same house.

    Could we use an Eather cable to hook up our macs without haveing to use the internet?

    Not sure if this is the right place but I have searched alot of forums with no avail.

    If they are within 25 feet of each other than buy a cross over ethernet cable to string between them. Or if you want to spend a little more dough, buy a little linksys 5 port switch and two regular ethernet cables that will reach the two computers.

    Ok, I'll give that a try.
