Apple to Win2000 - Mac Applications & Software

I have a MAC G4 on which I produce pamphlet, magazines etc. these I then transfer via ZIP Disc to my Win 2000 PC to convert them into .pdf for publishing in the Internet. Is there a way that I can transfer the data from the Mac directly onto my PC??? Please help I'm tired of switching discs....

    why are you moving the files to create pdfs?
    OS X creates PDFs natively

    (print the dooents - click the button 'save as PDF')

    otherwise a router, switch or hub will allow you to network the 2
    machines. OS X natively will peer-to-peer file share with wins

    Ethernet and file sharing seems the obvious choice. Mac OS X supports
    SMB, so you could just copy files across the network.

    However, you could just create the PDF on the Mac easily enough.

    PrintToPDF will convert a file to PDF format under OS 9.

    All the answers seem to assume you are using OS X on your G4. If you
    need to file/printer share with PCs under OS 9, try Thursby Software's
    Dave on the mac _or_ PC MacLan for Windows 2000. Both seem to work
    quite well, although they are commercial software (which means they
    cost $$). Samba is built into OS X, so you have PC print/file sharing
    right out of the box.

    Make your PDFs on the Mac. ;-)

    In actual fact I'm not even lucky enough to have OS 9!!! I'm running
    OS D1 8.6 on a G3 !!! As to making the .pdf's on the Mac it's not
    that easy I publish using Quark and therefore it is better for me to
    transfer the data to the PC before I convert.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    In that case, your best bet will be Dave (Thursby Software). It's not
    all that expensive, and it really does a good job of networking a Mac
    (8.6 or later) to any flavor of Windows (95 or later).

    Get the AdobePS printer drivers. They are free, and they workunder
    OS 8.6. They include a PDF printer driver, that works really well.

    Create the PDF by printing using Quark on your Mac, and just FTP it
    over onto your PC. There are free FTP servers/clients available for
    both platforms.
