Can I network XP pro with Mac OS?

I have a PC running XP pro at home and was wondering if it is possible to network and old PowerMac I have that has a built in ethernet port? I think the Mac is running MacOS 8.

I already have a cable router connected to my roadrunner, so is it possible?

File sharing will not work, because XP does not support Appletalk. Set up TCP/IP and it can access the Internet through the router but XP does not come with an Appletalk driver :(

I've networked W2K with Mac OS9 but that was using the really great program I can't remeber for the life of me, all I know is that it was named after the creator. But you can do it you'll just have to by the program if I can find it again I'll post it here...


I went looking around here is one option not the best but it is XP compatible Here

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
