which leaves me wondering how folks who use MACs
install an ethernet interface.
On my older compact Macs I use Asante SCSI-->Ethernet adaptors, and the
software is still available easily from Asante's site. My main Linux box
acts as a Netatalk fileserver and all the Macs share off of it.
To handle the bridging of phonenet, I took a Dayna Etherport
Ethernet-->Appletalk bridge originally designed to use an Ethernet
LaserWriter on an Appletalk network. It bridges all of the machines that I
have daisy-chained together with PhoneNET onto my Ethernet (10b2) which then
hooks into a hub's coax port and bridges the 10b2 over to 10bT for the rest
of my 'net. Works WONDERFULLY, although transfers are still slow (PhoneNET
only does 128K/sec, I believe).
