    okay i am getting an intel Mac mini, and i want to transfer all my mail info, like contacts, and messages, i also want to have the exact same adium set up, which means i need to have all my settings and contacts saved, if possible.

    Let me know how to do these things,
    Thanks,

    What machine are you transferring from and will you have access to this machine when you get your mini? :)

    Yes, it is a 1.42ghz mac mini.
    I will be able to transfer stuff to it, i just need the know how as to transfer the mail stuff, and adium stuff, i am guessing that i will have to take stuff from the library's and replace stuff on the new mini?
    Please let me know, also is there a way to save your photoshop, should i use the migration assistant, or would that be bad going from PPC to INTEL?

    Thanks.

    For those three tasks, I reckon Migration Assistant should be fine. Remember that Photoshop isn't a Universal Binary yet. :)

    PPC to Intel should be fine, just remember not to go from Intel to PPC.
