    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15" 2.2GHz/4GB/250GB, G4 Cube 450MHz + 17" Studio LCD
    Networking/sharing files between iMac (wired) and Windows (wireless)
    I have my iMac G3 (running Panther) on wired ethernet connected to a Linksys router for internet, and I have my iTunes library stored on it (plus an external HDD with NTFS and FAT32 partitions).

    I also have a Windows XP laptop which has wireless connection to the router.

    Basically, I want to know how I can network them so I can wirelessly access the music on my iMac (or on external HDD) from my windows laptop (for example if I am browsing the net in the garden and want some music).

    EDIT: Also, if anybody knows any good free remote access software so I can control my mac from a windows computer over the internet or network, it would be great.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I have to say this site helped me out alot when I wanted to set up file sharing between XP and OS X. Give it a shot and I think you will be pleased.

    As for remote desktop between Mac and PC, I would be very interested in that myself.

    Yep it worked fine.

    I can add all of my music from my iMac into my Windows iTunes library and listen to it.

    I have also set up a sharing folder on my Windows laptop to share files with my iMac, but to access it I need to disable my windows firewall (ZoneAlarm).

    Yeah I'm just having trouble trying to configure ZoneAlarm firewall on my windows laptop to allow sharing, because to access I need to disable it.
