Start up from a networked disk?
Is it possible to boot your computer from a disk it is networked to (i.e. my other computers hard drive linked to this one via an ethernet?). Both are running OS 9, one is an iMac 350 and the other a beige G3/300.

Can anyone help?

You need 100Mbit Ethernet, AppleShare IP, and OS 8.6 or later...this is Apple's NetBoot.

I'm not sure on the speed of my ethernet...
I'm using the built-in ports, which I think the box called "10/100 Base-T" (or similar).

And what is AppleShare IP? Where can I get it? Is it shareware/freeware or must I purchase it?

slboett is Mistaken. You can't do that with AppleShare IP. You need MacOS X Server. You can get more info at .

Your beige g3 cannot netboot. Only non-beige Macs can netboot (ie iMac, iBook, etc). So I'd suggest installed the OS X Server on your Beige computer and netboot the other one. Also note that you need an extra ethernet card in the OS X Server machine.
