Well, the other machine is substantially different hardware-wise and it has 
Windows XP on it (which I need to retain), so I suppose I rather don't just 
clone the system.
I was rather aiming at using the install script, which I take does a good 
job at targeting the machine, but simply avoiding the burden of downloading 
all the packages all over again; yet the package configuration I still want 
it to be done in the target machine.
