Synching home directories on OS X

My old PowerBook is fixed, and I'm getting ready to send my new one off to the person that bought it. As part of this process, I wanted to synch up the home directories, since that's all that's changed b/w the two in the last 3 weeks. I figured rsync was the solution, but since I'm an rsync rookie - I searched around for a GUI tool. I found RsyncX, installed it, booted the newer PowerBook as a firewire drive and updated my old PowerBook. 20 minutes later and my old one looks like my new one. Very nice.
