 Aging PowerBook Upgrade by a Linux/OS X Geek

Ah the joy of upgrades.

"Given these issues, I decided a clean install was my best bet. I needed more disk space, leaving all the garbage behind. After a little research I had a solution: I would do a fresh install of Tiger on an external drive, and then swap that drive with the existing hard drive in my PowerBook. This would allow me to selectively copy data from my old drive to the new drive. When I was done, my old drive could serve as a external backup."
