BAsically, what I did was replace my hard drive and controller with one of them
new Ultra160 setups. Then, after doing a NFS install of fisher onto the new
empty drive, I installed my old root drive on the scsi2 bus of the controller
and did a "cp -af /mnt/old-drive/home/glenn /home/ " .  It copied all of the
'.' sub directories.

People may cringe at all of the bells and whistles, but I just love to watch
all the casual windows and mac users drool when they see some of the toys I
have on my desktop. Of course, the best thing I show them is the uptime epplet
when it has over 100 days of uptime and I have over 30 desktop programs running
in several virtual windows.

Thank You everybody for your help!
