network a cdtv to 1200

hi ,
I was given a cdtv some time ago which i managed to get working at the weekend , the question being would i be able too network this together with the 1200 possibly using parnet and would this allow me to access the cd-rom from the 1200 ?

You could use it for data, for sure. Parnet would allow you to do that - simply share the CD drive on the CDTV through parnet.

You could even set the CDTV up to boot and mount parnet automatically from a CD... But it would be easier to troubleshoot if you had a floppy drive and keyboard for the CDTV

Get someone on here to build you one. I'd offer, but there's many people in the UK who can do it.
