rsync or tar the /var/lib/mysql dir up and move that. I am guessing in 
this case that some delimiter is breaking or the dump you did wasent clean.

Alternatively if you did use complete-inserts in your dump, you can run 
the load with : mysql -f db_name < blah.sql ; then look at what lines 
the load breaks on and make sure the data looks sane in those lines.
