Can I just transfer OS 9.2 system folder to New iMac?

Discussion in 'Apple' started by underemployed, Oct 29, 2004.

  1. I've got a Powerbook Pismo and want to transfer everything over to a New
    iMac. I plan on transfering everyting via Target Disk Mode. Can I just
    drag my old 9.2 system folder over to the new iMac and have usage of all
    my old programs?

    Thanks for the info.

    Cheers

    Same experience here, between a G4 and a G5, and between a Pismo
    and an Albook.
