I will be getting a MacBook Pro in the near future and want to give my Powerbook G4 to my daughter. Once I use Apple's Setup Assistant to migrate my data and applications to the new MBP, how do I remove all my stuff from the PB and set it up for her?

Thanks!

Use your PowerBook's install discs to wipe the drive and reinstall the OS.

Well, firstly your daughter is lucky to inherit your PBG4 and secondly, just have a read through the following for a detailed description of preparing a used mac for resale, or in your case - to pass on to another member of the family.

Enjoy your MBP when it comes!

Prepare your Mac for sale/donation

Prepare a used PowerBook G4 to pass on to your daughter

There is some useful information about deauthorizing certain apps/files etc

Hmmm...anyway I can keep the applications like MS Office and iLife on it and transfer those to her? It's not like I don't know the new owner. :yinyang:

Thank you for the links! Sounds very simple once I transfer the data over to the MBP. Will have to budget in a new iLife package if that can't be transferred.
