Scenario - I have a new Mac, and am giving my old one to my father-in-law.
He now has an old Gx Gumdrop iMac running 10.3 (I think), and the new-to-him mac is an older Core2 iMac running 10.6
From How can I transfer data from a G5 iMac to an i7 iMac? I have an idea of how to connect the two machines.
Other than deleting my old data, etc.; any specific gotchas to watch out for, given that I am targeting not a brand-new mac, but an old one? Can I just trigger the migration assistant (because normally it is triggered as part of the initial install process)?
