    My Imac just didn't wake up one day and I want to transfer the information from the hard drive to the new G4 I bought. The Imac doesn't start, and I'm not sure if a firewire connection would do it. Any help on how to transfer the info from a dead Imac would very much be appreciated. Thanks

    You could always pull the drive out and place it in the G4 (make sure to jumper it properly). Might want to get an inexpensive FireWire case and use it there and get a better 2nd internal drive for your G4. Instructions and photos on iMac drive upgrade are on a couple of sites, but I know www.xlr8yourmac.com will have one. only instead of "upgrading" just remove it. There may be something else preventing the iMac from booting worth looking into.
