Hi All,

I've just had to relocate and am using a new installation of Linux. I 
wasn't able to clone the previous machine's drive, so copied the 
directories to our server via FTP, but, I am wondering how best to 
approach this as I've never done this before. I'm interested in 
preserving all home stuff as well as apps I previously installed, but 
wonder whether just copying from old to new installation will work. It's 
the same OS and version. Will I run across lots of roblems with this? 
Should I just re-install everything,and save myself any issues? Curious. 
What are your thoughts on this? Cheers.
