yep you can network them with no problems.

Just a standard Cat5 cable into a router or a switchover straight to the PeeC.
The setup is much easier on the mac end of it to share files but we can explain the windows setup on here (i think its actually in the manual with new macs)


Depends on the system on the pc. No problem with XP and ofcourse no problem with the mac. :) I have a pc and a mac and once I set up the network it's running fine.
