I had to read your last post to get some idea as to what was going on. This is a solution sort of but you need to ask what yourself what do you mean by sync? Do you want the contents of both address books to be the same but not update when you make a change on one or the other. Or do you want your address books to update each other when you make a change in either one. That is something you have to decide. For the first option you can open your address book from the dock and select all of your contacts. Then you want to go to the file menu and chose export and then chose v card. This option will place a card for each contact in a folder of your choice. This option is the best if you are moving info to a windows pc as well.

The second option is easier but has two choices for you two pick. if you want both of your address books to be the same at all times you need to connect your address book to an in between system. there are two you can choose from, one is mobile me an apple product which does more than just adress book sync but comes with a fee. there is also a site called plaxo.com which also does address book and calendar sync for a mac only.

I hope that helps fix your issue

Start from scratch. Go back to your main computer and create a USB key and try that way.

Wondering, is your MAc setup for wireless?

Another thought, i had the same issue connecting my Mac to my parents wireless. I used the installation disc and that solved that.

AirPort Password


Hello,

This article provides instruction on the installation of the AirPort Wireless Networking card into a Power Mac G4 (AGP Graphics) computer. Similar instructions, with graphics, are included with the AirPort card.

1. Shut down the computer (choose Shut Down from the Special menu) and unplug all cables except the power cord.
2. Touch the metal PCI access cover on the back of the computer to discharge static electricity. Avoid walking around until you have finished installing the card. Unplug the power cord then lift the latch on the side of the computer.
3. Gently lower the side panel onto a clean, flat surface. Lower it onto a soft cloth to avoid scratching the case.
4. Connect the antenna cable to the connector on the end of the AirPort card. The cable is usually stowed on the side of the PCI card guide.
5. Remove the metal clip and pull the AirPort card from the adapter card, shown below. The adapter card and clip are not used with your Power Mac G4.

6. Insert the AirPort card (serial number side up) through the opening in the PCI card guide, and into the connector on the main logic board as shown below.

58536_2.gif

7. Raise the side panel and press it against the case until it snaps into place.
Instructions for using the AirPort software are in Mac Help, available in the Help menu.

Wireless Internet access requires an Internet service provider (fees may apply) and AirPort (or AirPort-compatible) wireless Ethernet card and base station. Some ISPs are not compatible with AirPort. For more information, see technical document 106590: "AirPort: Requirements for Wireless Internet Access"

Thank You
