I have a Performa 5200 that I use for communicating with an Akai sampler via SCSI and Akai's MESA software.
The machine does not have built in ethernet, but there is a hole in the back where I think there used to be an ethernet port. I want to network with a modern mac running osx 10.9 Mavericks

What card should I look for, for this machine?

I am all new to vintage macs.

Hi,

There is a PDS slot on this mac so I gess you should try to find a PDS ethernet card.

I don't really know how hard it is to find but I know they exist.

The Performa 5200 also has a CommSlot which can hold an Ethernet card.

Thanks for replies.

I might get one of those commslot cards from welovemacs.com, unless I can track something down in Denmark or Europe.

Is there any difference in performance from a commslot card to an LC PDS card?

One more question...

Since support for HFS file system was dropped from Snow Leopard, will I be able to access the files on my modern mac from System7? I'm on OSX 10.9.
