    When I transferred all the data from my old iMac to my new iMac G5 via Firewire, it brought everything over. Been using the computer for about 3 weeks and all is fine. I'd like to dump the following folders; anything I should be concerned about?

    Applications (Mac OS 9)
    Desktop (Mac OS9)
    System Folder (from old Mac)

    Haven't used OS9 in ages. No need for any of its apps.

    Can't see any probs there.

    If you're really concerned and just in case, back them up first to external HD or DVD-RW or something re-usable...

    Also the Documents folder in your HD's root isn't needed. In X your Documents are in your home folder.
