I'm going to be transferring my files from a PowerBook G4 to my new MacBook Pro. Does the file transfer software allow you to select which files you want to transfer, or is it all or nothing? Here is why, my PBG4 has Virtual PC with Windows XP Pro installed, but I don't want to transfer that to the the MBPro since I plan on using Parallels, I do want to transfer everything else though.

Dillinger who was killed in the line of duty.

I personally haven't used the Migration Assistant, but even if it can't do what you want, you can always just hook the two laptops up via Ethernet and just drag everything from one to the other.
