 Use a Spare Mac as FireWire Hub On or Off

"This setup is especially useful for PowerBook and iBook owners who have only one FireWire port. With this setup it is possible to access hard drives, DV cameras, iPods, and iSights attached to a second Mac, be it on or off. Combine this with not being lucky enough to have wireless Internet in your home so you can use IP-over-FireWire and access FireWire devices over one wire in one fell swoop. Internet access and high-speed device connectivity over the same wire, whoa!"
