What is the fastest way to transfer data between PowerBooks?

In order to be a good husband, now that I've given my old laptop to Julie, I need to transfer all my files, settings, etc. from my old PowerBook to my new one. What's the fastest way to do this? I'm guessing Firewire or something like that. Do the Apple Retail outlets sell anything?

Remember when you used the "T" key to try to boot from your iPod? You can do this on your old Powerbook when it connect via Firewire to your new PB. The "T" will put your old PB into "firewire" disk mode where it will operate just like an external hard drive. It will then show up on the desktop of your new PB were you can then copy to/from it.

I would recommend FireWire! Unfortunately you have to download a package through the developer connection in order to get IP-over-FireWire because it is not build into Jaguar by default.

Ok, Kurt's approach is much better! Forgot this one =)

Definitely use firewire target mode on the laptop you're giving to your wife.... You'll be done faster then you could imagine.

Thanks for the suggestions - I got a 6-pin to 6-pin Firewire cable ($30!) and it worked like a charm - lickedly split. Falling in love with this thing more each day... ;-)

After the point - I wonder if a patch cable connected to each network card would work well?
