Hi, I am receiving in a couple days my new iMac 24", 2.4ghz running leopard. I currently have an ibook g4 running tiger. I read on a different thread that migration assistant can be used using ethernet http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3322 Couple questions regarding this: 1. Can I simply connect both the ibook and imac directly with an ethernet cable and perform the migration assistant? 2. Will I need installation CD's or validation codes for programs on old mac? i.e. i have microsoft office, and cannot remember where i put the validation codes (bought it over 3.5 years ago). Additionally, I have read on several threads regarding issues with the source account name and the target account name. What should the target account name be when performing migration assistant? i.e.: source= john doe should target be john doe1 or john doe in order to recognize the same user? Thanks for help and clarifications.
