Excellent Response!! I don't use this forum that often, but when I do
I always get good, timely responses.

The most reccommended solution for just a few systems was:

        * SCSI to 10BaseT converter (by Asante, Focus Systems,
           Danya Comm., or Technology Works)
        * MacTCP (from Apple)
        * NCSA telnet from
        * CAP (Columbia Appletalk Protocol)
        * NFS-Share (TCP/IP/NFS) software from Intercon

For more than a few systems it was suggested that I use a GatorBox or
its equal, but since I only need to connect two PowerBooks......
