Howard and Charles;

Thank you both for your excellent advice and help. It went  
flawlessly. A few apps needed to be reinstalled, but that was mainly  
because, as far as I can tell, they were PPC only.

Do either of you know how to create a disk image of the old hard  
drive? I recall there was a way to have a condensed version of your  
entire disk as back-up.

Thanks again.
