Hello Nik,

Thank you for your quick reply.  My 12 year old P4 dual core is dieing 
and I have a new AMD quad core sat here doing nothing but waiting for 
me to get round to using it.

I'm glad that moving from 32 to 64 bit isn't an issue.

I don't use Kdewallet !  I've had some previous experience with that

that was my main concern.  I did rather hope that it would just be a 
simple file transfer.
