Can I connect my PowerBook G4 to my desktop G4?

I want to see it as another disk image and then drag'n'drop files from one to another.

Can this be done? And if so how?

Its pretty easy, just connect say the powerbook (turn off powerbook firs) to the desktop using the firewire port, then restart the powerbook hold down "t"

Powerbook is now a firewire external hard disk

Thanks MacMan.

I can then drag and drop?
Where will the folders end up? on the desktop?

Yep, just a simple case of dragging files from one to the other. You can drag them from the PB to your G4 desktop or vice versa - where ever you want as the PB is now acting like an external hard disk
