cohocoal is on a distinguished road

cohocoal is offline
Hello, I'm new on this forum but not new to macs. I am attempting to transfer all my data and programs from my powerbook g4 running 10.5.8 to a macbook running 10.7. I restart the powerbook in terminal mode connected to the macbook (via 6 pin firewire) and the hard drive shows up. When I open migration assistant and start the process the macbook can't find the powerbook. I've let them sit for a few hours and there is no change. Am I asking to much, or am I missing a step that would complete the process.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
QUOTE Thanks
