I have an iBook with MacOSX and I have an iMac with 9.2, I have sharing on the iMac and they are both connected with a crossover cable, I just don't know how to connect to the iMac with OSX. There is not network browser or anything like that, what do I do?

In the Finder press: 'Command + K' (Has the same effect as: 'Go > Connect to server...')

That is the new network browser, so there you can connect to the iMac via TCP/IP or AppleTalk.

You can connect to the OS9 Mac from OSX (be sure to check the 'Make Appletalk active' box under the 'Appletalk' tab on the 'Network' control panel), but unfortunatly not the other way round, as OSX only does Appletalk IP sharing which the OS9 Mac cannot 'see'

I connect to my G4 running X from three other computers, all running some version of 9. The trick is to turn AppleTalk on in the machine running X, or to have ShareWay IP Personal Background in the extension folder of the machine running 9 (or both ). The ShareWay extension will let you connect to the X machine using its TCP/IP address via the Chooser.

Edit: i forgot to add that you need to turn Sharing on in the machine running X, which you do via the Sharing Pane (go figure!)
