Sym to MAC

This may be more of a MAC question than a Symbolic's, but ...
I am trying to copy files to and fro a MAC. But there doesn't
seem to be a System Type for MAC in the namespace. I've tried
a few, and had the most success using just a dummy (random) type.
I am using NCSA Telnet 2.3 on the MAC, and am using services
I can copy files to the MAC ok. My problem is I don't know
how to reference a specific folder on the MAC to which to
copy the files. They currently go into whatever directory
I have defined on the MAC as my "Transfer Directory". But
with what I've seem to be able to do with my UNIX copies,
I was wondering if there is some kind of pathname convention
that would work when copying to the MAC, or if I
need to create a new system type.
In 8.0, there is a system type called MACINTOSH, which causes pathnames
for the host to be in the Mac's standard format:
I think you can then say something like
Copy File >...from-directory...>*.lisp MAC:hard-disk:my-system:source:*.lisp
and that will work.
[I haven't tried using the Namespace editor to change the system type of
the host, so that may not work. If not, I will send you the lower-level
code I used to create a Macintosh host to play with.]
