    I am using a second hard drive with OSX and I am wondering where the addresses are on the other hard drive. Can I import them to the address book on my other hard drive. Can I import my emails from the one mail app to the other hard drive also.

    Thanks for your help.

    I have to transfer all the data to my other operating system. How do you do that?

    I swapped one for the other

    I swapped one for the other now, but I would like to add the two data files together.

    If you re-install Panther, on first boot, at set-up, it'll ask you if you want to copy data from another HD's OS X installation. Just hook up the other drive, answer a few quick questions, and it'll automatically get your old user from the other drive.
