Not only that, but she picked up my 4G iPod in my car the other day and quickly decided that it was "the coolest thing [she'd] ever seen." So she's gonna take advantage of the iPod rebate too.
One last question. Remember the old Gateway I told y'all about? It's running Windows 98 (yeah I know...be nice). It has ethernet, so I was thinking that there was a way to transfer some of her old files from that thing to her new iBook. Can it be done or is Windows 98 just too old? Thanks again guys
I've had problems with Apple's Samba (under 10.2) and Win98… I don't know if their upgrade to Samba 3 helped, because by the time 10.3 rolled around I'd moved that computer to XP.
FTP might be a better option… I'm using the nice GUI-fied version of PureFTPD
(an sftp server). You can probably get by with the built-in one.
