Dear All,


I'm running Leopard 10.5.8 on PB and want to migrate everything except the OS to the MBP which is running Lion.  I understand that any apps that are not universal might not function, which is okay, but I want my new Mac to have all my exisiting settings, files, and so on.


I have a Firewire 400 to 800 cable and wonder if it's possible to connect them to gether and specify what I want to migrate?


I would be grateful for any help.  My new Mac will arrive in a couple of days and I want to get it up and running as soon as it gets here.


I've posted this in the Powerbook forum as well.





PowerBook G4, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 1Gb memory
