My 630 is networked to the Linux box and I can telnet in from it and even
run MI/X (a Mac X-Window server).

I think what you need is "Apple Video Player". AFAIK it came on the system
CD - it did with my Performa 630 - though you should be able to find it
on Apples site. I'm using it now with an old video camera to watch the
wild birds on the bird feeder in the garden!
