If you are not familiar with moving the files around, I suggest you run 
RC5 from a diskette.  
Copy the RC5-642.001+ folder to a diskette, and run it from your slow Mac 
to grab the buffer for about 200 - 500 blocks.  Then take the diskette to 
your faster Mac and run the RC5-64 Client.  You can select the Client>Run 
Offline from the menu.  However, if you didn't do that, the client will 
try to flush the blocks to the server after about 20 times of failure to 
send, the client will turn itself into the Offline mode.

After finished will the blocks, take the diskette to your slower Mac, run 
the RC5-64 Client, flush the completed blocks and fetch for new blocks.  
Hope the above method work for you :)

Happy cracking!
