    I have two OSX Leopard Macs. An iMac and a MacBook. The iMac has ben in use for a few months and has 4 user accounts (me, wife and two kids). What is the best way to duplicate the accounts on the MacBook without having to go through the process of setting them all up separately?

    I'd love to just move the accounts and there settings to my MacBook!

    Migration Assistant (in /Applications/Utilities/).

    I started to do that, but Migration Assistant wanted to move 2.2GB of files in the Library folder over too - I was worried that it would create a real mess by doing so. Is it safe to move the Library files from my iMac over to the Macbook? I've been using the MacBook for a few months and don't want my applications, etc to get whacked.

    I guess my question is - is it really a good idea to move all of those Library files over to my other Mac? Won't it just foul things up?
