    Tiger to Snow leopard
    I am going to try to use Migration Assistant to transfer from Tiger to Snow Leopard. I haven't turned on my new Snow Leopard yet because I'm not sure how to do this. Could someone give me a tutorial of how to do this please? Thanks in advance

    Back your data up first. Especially since Leopard users were complaining of losing all their data after upgrading and then logging in as a guest.

    Gotta admit that babyt's response got a chuckle out of me!

    But, to your question, when you get to the stage of being asked if you want to migrate your info it will walk you through the procedure. Mainly, it tells you to hook up a FW or Ethernet cable and decide what you want to migrate.

    The loss of data problem won't affect you, or hardly anyone else, for a couple of reasons. You never used a guest account in Leopard on your new Mac and it was fixed in 10.6.1.

    I get it
    I googled it and I understood ehh... 95%.
    I still don't know if you click "to another computer" on Tiger or "from another computer" on SL. If it's possible to do either way, which one is safer?

    Since you are installing Snow Leopard you would follow the instructions which will be going from the other computer to your Snow Leopard Mac.

    I have found it to be intuitive and a great way to "migrate" your settings, etc. to the new Mac. I even migrate my Apps, in spite of some people saying you should install fresh.

    I have never had a problem with my apps except when I went from a PPC G5 to my first Intel Mac and that was only with a couple of apps that I simply reinstalled.
