	Yaaa, shuure. Need coffee? The files I had to copy are on a 
Fedora 10 machine, as I and everyone else took for granted. 

	Fwiw, all my computers run Fedora 10, apart from this one -- 
which ran it, too, for a while. But it took at least ten minutes to boot 
-- and the only use I have for it is in waiting rooms.

	Meanwhile, however, I've done that preliminary job with scp 
instead.

	The hard part comes next : transferring the 
same .addressbook, .pinerc, etc., to my wife's machine, on which she has 
not yet run (Al)Pine; she has always done all her mail till now over ssh 
into a remote machine, and run it there.

	I'm guessing scp will make some trouble about userids and 
permissions, if not also passwords. 

	I suppose the least troublesome way will be to copy them all into 
a folder, move that folder as root to her account on this machine, chown 
it, and only then scp it. If anybody has a better easier way, I'm all 
ears.
