How to make a headless older PowerBook work
Authored by: AaronAdams on Nov 17, '05 08:43:31AM

I'm a little confused by this hint, but I wanted to comment about another way to create a headless machine. I use this with my old G4 Cube at home. Install the OS in whatever way you can, and in the Sharing preferences enable Apple Remote Desktop. Click the Access Privileges button, and check the box next to "VNC viewers may control screen with password", and create a password. From this point on, you can use a free VNC client like Chicken of the VNC to control your Mac without the need to plug in a monitor, keyboard, or mouse. Your Mac can run by itself on a shelf or desk somewhere as a stand-alone unit.
