    BURN a DATA DVD using another mac?
    I know this is like child's play to a lot of you, but I couldn't find any info on the forums.

    I have a lot of data on my powerbook that I need to backup. I have a friend's powermac G4 with dvd burner.

    Can I use the PowerMacs Dvd burner straight from my PowerBook? I mean, I know this can be done. How?

    Thanks for your help!
    I drank what?

    can you not browse your machine over a network or put your machine into disc mode?

    there are loads of ways to do this

    I know it can be done. All I need is a couple of options.

    That's why I asked....

    Cool
    You can use Toast if you have it. Also you can connect your PowerBook to the PowerMac using target mode.
