Just a quick note...you may need to disable the Localtalk PCI Extension on the G3's to print.

You don't need to configure Users & Groups to access the other Mac.  The only reason you would want to configure that is because you have more than one user, who would have a different access level.

I hope this helps.

I think I'll do the SCSI hard drive connections. This networking stuff is confusing... I hope Apple makes this easier  (more plug & play) like the new Windows 98 OS... thanks anyway

No, networking is NOT easier with Windows!  What gave you THAT impression???  In Windows, you have to install AND configure drivers up the ying-yang just to do peer-to-peer networking.

On Macs, they should be already installed, unless you've purposely removed them.  You just may have to tweak the settings a bit, as was mentioned.  It's more plug-and-play than Windows could ever imagine to offer.
