I'm buying a G4 tower today. I'm currently using a G3 iMac. How do I
go about copying all of my files to the new computer without worrying
about permissions, etc? All the Mail, Docs, Music, Quicken Data, etc.
needs to be transferred, and I would like to do it without having to use
the same exact username from my old machine. But if this happens, I run
into the problem of permissions. Someone told me if I use the old
machine as a FireWire drive (by holding down the T key on bootup) for
the new computer, permissions wouldn't recognized. Is this true? Also,
is there a better way? Surely Apple has foreseen this need and provided
a way to do it easily.
