By Atmos42 ·
I have Mac that I would really like to
network to a Win98 box. The purpose
would be for backing up files to CD/R. Is it
possible to do this?

Yes...

You need to use third party solutions such as DAVE (http://www.thursby.com/ Go to downloads to get an evaluation copy) to allow your Mac to talk to the Win98 machine.

Another option, you might be able to connect the drive to the Mac. Ifyou have a recent Mac and your drive is an IDE (40 pins) drive you can connect it to one of the cables inside (harder on an iMac). If you have a SCSI (50 pins) drive and an older Mac or a SCSI card, you can connect it there to...

I hope this helps... Good luck

What about:

Use laplink to connect one PC to the other by LPT1 and then move your files to your Win98 for backing up

All you need is laplink software(freeware) and LPT1 cable,

Let me know what you think

Have you considered using FTP? There are plenty of free/shareware ftp servers and clients. Do a search on tucows.com or a similar shareware site for the server and client software.
