I am currently using debian lenny as my primary computer. It's a Dell
Dimension 8300, P4, 3.4G with 1G Ram. 60G HD.
I also have a Dell Optiplex GX620 which currently has win7 on a 300G
HD with 1.5g ram. I will be removing files from the win7 and storing
them on DVDs and installing Debian on it. How can I clone/transfer my
current working machine with all it's files/programs like
thunderbird/iceweasel etc to the GX520 and still retain a working system?
Thanks for all the info on the above. "SHE WHO MUST BE OBEYED" has
persuaded me NOT to do as I planned. She likes the system as is and
refuses to let me change it. Thanks anyway as I did learn a lot by
following up the suggestions on clonezilla etc.
PS I have file backup manager 'Pybackpack' currently running but I
don't think that is what I want.
