Make sure you use the same paths as on the old system, this makes
transition a lot simpler.
Then, transfer one .cfg and it's log files at a time, making sure
each one works properly before moving the next one.
Yes, you will lose a few minutes of data now and then, but that
cannot possibly be ultra critical, can it? Once you have done a
couple of cfg's you will know exactly what to watch for and it will
go ever quicker.
