I'm planning to get a powrmac and need to know how to tranfer all the stuff from my centris 650 over to the new computer.  Is there any way to connect the two like I can do between my powrbook and the centris 650 now?

lots of ways... easiest...
hook them up w/ a serial cable, turn on appletalk,  turn on filesharing on the  650, and your set.

or, hook them up via local talk (exactly the same, but using local talk adapters and phone wire to connect them.

or, hook them up via modem and us a program like z-term to copy the files over (pain in the butt).

or, hook them up via cross-over ethernet cable and set up exactly the same as the apple talk but set it to ethernet instead) .... nice and fast...

or, ftp the files to a remote server (lots of services will do this for free), and then download them w/ the new computer.

or, copy files onto another drive and then hook up the drive to the new computer.

the easist are the serial cable, ethernet cable, or seperate drive.

good luck.

What is a serial cable?  What ports does it connect?

a serial cable is the cable that connects into the modem or printer port.  If you have standard printer, you could probably use that one temporarily.  Just plug one end into the printer port on the back of each computer, then turn on apple talk on both computer and set it to connect via the printer port.  Then, on the 650, turn on file sharing and using the users and groups control panel, set up an account for you to log on with.  Once that is working, you will have to click on the hard drive, select "sharing from the file menu" and turn on sharing from that window.  Make sure you allow full read and write access to your new account.  Then on the new computer, open up the chooser via the apple menu, click on able share, and you should see the name of your 650's harddrive in the upper right.  Click on it and connect, put in the password, and you will be able to mount the 650 on your desktop just like sticking a CD or floppy in to the drive.  That simple!  Have fun!
