hey all. i just purchased a powermac for my girlfriend, and she currently has a mac mini. what i am wanting to do is transfer EVERYTHING from her mini to the powermac. i currently have carbon copy, but havent really used it.

will carbon copy do what i want to do? i have ample external hard drives to handle all the files. is there a way i could hook a firewire cable up to the PM and the mini and transfer these? will carbon copy do this? in a perfect world, id like to boot the powermac and it look and have exactly everything the mini had on it.

any help?

Like Craig suggests, use Migration Assistant... and with a Firewire cable.
