Transfugdrake allows you to import settings and documents from your Microsoft® Windows® partition into your Mandriva Linux partition, in order to ease your migration from Windows® to Mandriva Linux. The wizard consists of a few simple steps, detailed below.
Transfugdrake only supports migration from the Windows® 2000, Windows® XP, and Windows Vista® operating systems.
Please bear in mind that each wizard operation takes effect immediately after clicking.
Procedure 11.1. Migrating User Settings and Documents
If you have more than one user on your operating systems, you are asked to select the source (Windows®) and target (Mandriva Linux) users: use the corresponding pull-down lists to select users.
You are then asked whether you want to migrate documents. Select the Skip step option if you don't want to migrate documents right now, but are interested in migrating settings.
Select the Import documents option to copy
documents from the
to your Mandriva Linux system. Use this if
you don't plan to use
and want to be able to delete its partition without too much risk of
data loss. Files and folders from “My Documents”, “My
Pictures” and “My Music” are copied over to the
Music folders, respectively.
Please be patient, depending on the amount of information to transfer, the copying operation may take a long time to complete.
Select the Import bookmarks option to import the web browser bookmarks. Both Microsoft® Internet Explorer® and Mozilla Firefox bookmarks are merged with the user's Mozilla Firefox bookmarks on Mandriva Linux.
If you select the Skip Step option web browser bookmarks are not imported and you will have to rebuild your Windows® bookmarks collection one by one.
Simply select the Use Mandriva background option to keep your current Mandriva Linux desktop's background image, or select Import background to use the desktop background image from Windows® instead.
