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?

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

That's why I asked....

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