I currently have an old Powerbook G4 (550) and have bought a new mac mini (not setup yet). As the powerbook is more or less knackered (screen no longer works), I want to move everything from the Powerbook to the Mac Mini, keeping all the settings, users, itunes, photos (in iphoto), mail etc. How can I do this?

I have Tiger on the Mini and Panther on the Powerbook. However, I could update the powerbook to Tiger if it was going to help.

Thanks for the advice on how to do this.

To answer my own question I have found this:

Basically, if I leave Panther on the mac mini (Tiger is supplied as additional disk, not installed) then I can run the Set-up assistant that will copy all the files across.

Perfect!

I did this when I set up my iBook and it worked like a charm! Good luck!
