    I've got an iBook G3, and just got tiger.

    I think the only stuff I really want to keep from my iBook is my music (9 gigs) and a few select programs (nothing huge).

    Can i just make a perfect copy of my curent music folder onto my external HD, and then copy the applicaations over, then transfer them back when the install is done?

    I've tried to drag it over, and I tihnk the itunes library doesnt want to copy, is tehre anything I can use to copy it?
