I have a Mac Powerbook G3 (Wallstreet) with 18GB HDD and 288 MB RAM. I use AT&T DSL on my Win XP desktop. I'm heading north and would like to take my laptop to check in on the web and check my email etc. I'll be staying in motels that advertise Hi Speed internet connections.
I have a PCI slot, ethernet and Firewire jacks on the laptop. No Floppy but a CD-ROM drive.
I have OS 9.2 and 10.2.3 running.
What, exactly, do I need to do what I want? I'd like it to be as financially painless as possible but absolutely fool proof.
