After a conversation with my very knowledgable local supplier.. I walked out with a vague impression that you could for instance, hook up a v fast dual proccessor pc to a G4 via a high speed network connection .. and, while working in OSX on the G4, use the pc as extra proccessing power and RAM ... not to mention hard drive space. Is this possible? It's just my g4 is very reliable under most situations and I'm looking at getting a G5 to run PhotoshopCS2... but if it's cheaper and handier to get extra proccessing power this way I would be tempted. Any opinions? ... As I said before ... great discussion boards... v informative!
