The final step is to go through the Program list and note anything that I have installed on old Dobbin that needs adding to the new machine.
There is, of course, the little problem of the printer, for which I can no longer find the installation discs. Hopefully I will be able to find drivers on the web. I may well buy a new printer, but if this one will last a bit longer, it will save some money.
So the plan now is to work on the new machine whilst leaving the old one up for about a week. I'm sure there will be something I've forgotten to transfer, there always is, but with luck it won't be too vital.
