Migration Assistant Stuck at "Transferring files to support applications"

Hey guys,

OK, I just ran a clean install and I used Migration Assistant to restore my files (I only checked the account, the settings, and the files and folders) from my SuperDuper! backup. When I try to transfer the applications it gets stuck on "Transferring files to support applications" at the 1/3 point.

Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it? Here's some of my info:
I'm running a G5 Dual 2 GHz.

Thanks,
Don

Well, I'm getting a little impatient here (being the 3rd day that I've had Leopard). Does anyone know which files I have to copy over, cause I'd rather do it manually than reinstall everything without my preferences.

OK, here's what I got. I know that it transferred my settings, files and folders, and user account. I think that it's transferred my library. All that's left is my applications. To get to the applications, it has to go through the library, which is where it gets stuck. And you HAVE to transfer the library before you transfer the apps. Does anyone know a way around this?
