Take a look at this thread for connecting a Mac to a PC via Ethernet. Check out my post (#15) for step-by-step instructions :black:

It has been said a crossover cable is needed, but I just used a regular ethernet cable lying around and things went just find. I found out later that the reason it worked was because the Mac was smart enough to change the settings accordingly. Little things like that just make me love the Mac more :black:
