Any way to restart an interrupted copy operation

I'm a couple of hours into copying an entire itunes collection from my beige g3 to my albook. The albook is connected to airport. Unfortunately, the microwave got turned on, thereby scrambling the airport connection and the g3 disappeared from the server list. I reconnected, but the copy operation is still stalled. anyway to get it started again?

I think the RIAA handbook has a section covering this, in fact if you email them a pathway past your firewall, I'm sure they'll be glad to look at the problem.

Nope.

It may not even let you cancel -- I've had to force restart when cancelling and force-quitting the Finder didn't work after such an aborted copy operation.

Go to the folder that you were copying to and delete the last file that was copied and then start your copying again from there.
