Migration Assistant is a brand new utility that’s part of Mac OS X 10.4. It enables you to copy user information from another Macintosh to the one you are using. This makes it possible to transfer your information from an old Mac to a new one or to add user accounts from another Mac.
The Migration Assistant is very easy to use. It provides clear instructions for completing every step and walks you through the process of copying user information. Simply double-click its icon to get started and follow the prompts. Figures 84 and 85 show examples of the first two screens you’ll encounter.
Figure 84. The first screen of the Migration Assistant gives you a good idea of the kind of assistance it provides.
