I just put a second HD in my G5 and want to transfer all the applications, data, etc to the new drive to use as my main one. Can I use Migration Assistant, or do I need to do something else? I know this is really basic and I feel kind of stupid for asking, but thanks in advance. :)

Use CarbonCopyCloner (http://www.bombich.com/) or SuperDuper (http://www.shirt-pocket.com/superduper/superduperdescription.html) to make an exact 1:1 copy of the one internal HDD to the other.

I knew there had to be more to it. Thanks. :)

Actually, I just tried Migration Assistant and it's working. Thanks though!

Ah, you had Mac OS X installed on the new HDD and booted from it I guess? I didn't get that from your OP, thus my answer.

Anyway, it works, thus you should use another method.

Yeah, I was installing Leopard when I posted the thread. It'll be done in a little over an hour. :)
