I have both a PPC 8100/80 and a new G3. The older machine has a secondary Hard Drive,(Quantum XP34550S/4GB), which I would like to move to the new machine as a secondary drive. The primary drive in the G3 is referred to as an ATA type. I typically use FWB to format and partition. Can I make this transfer without  compatibility  problems?

yes you the internal drive in your G3 is a IDE drive or a ATA type. I think apple recomends that you use drive setup on the ATA dirve but you should be able to put the old HD in the new G3 with no problem

Make sure you verify proper termination and SCSI ID via jumper settings and termination packs.

Answer lacked a certain degree of clarity. Crashoverride  might have spent more time thinking about his response before writing it. I found myself stumbling over his words. Nonetheless I think I got a yes as an answer, since the "secondary (internal)drive" that I mentioned would  have to be SCSI. By the way,FWB's Hard Disk Toolkit will do exactly what Apple's Drive Setup would do...and more.

P.S. In spite of the aforementioned, I appreciated the response.
