The way to do this is the following. The problem is that the gnome
configuration files are different in each version of linux, tar up the
directories from the old system. THe create empty directories for each
user which will contain the new configuration files. The untar (tar
-xkf) on the new system. The k option prevents overwriting files that
are already there.
