    Unhappy cant find migration assistant in os 10.1.2 puma

    I'm new here but need some help.

    I'm trying to migrate photos from an ancient G4 running os 10.1.2 to a new imac running 10.6.8 but I am unable to find migration assistant on the old machine or make the new mac see the old using reboot and T. Is there a manual way I can transfer files using a network cable? I only want to copy the photos across Help

    Way... way too many specs to list.
    I do not believe that Migration Assistant was included until 10.3. You can set up file sharing on both Macs and copy the files across.

    This should be close enough to get ya going: Mac 101: File sharing
    This machine kills fascists
    Got # ? phear the command line!

    Smile Thanks
    Thanks Dysfunction, that explains alot.

    Thank you for your advice, I will try the link you suggested or try the painful process of burning to memory cards or dvds.
