    Transferring files from old G4 Mac to Mac Mini

    Can someone tell me what is the possibility to transfer files from an old G4 Mac to Mac Mini? Is it really possible with the help of Ethernet cable? Can someone please provide me the steps which I need to follow for it? Right now there are many things which I need to transfer if not all data is just waste and won’t be useful at all.
