Default Upgrading computer without losing assignments

I am lucky enough to finally be upgrading my computer soon. I currently have a dual PIII running 2 copies of Prime95. I am going to be getting an Dual Core AMD. Do I have to do anything besides just copy over the Prime95 directory to the new computer after installing it and it will take over where it left off? Or will the results not be credited to me? I might in the future bring the PIII back online, but I am using the case, drives and Power supply from it.

(I know Prime is faster on Intel chips, but I do Graphic design and The stuff I do is much faster on the AMD's).

Thanks,

Matt

It will continue where it left off. Your identity is stored in prime.ini and the work done so far is in the files starting with p and q and ending with the last digits of the current number you are testing.

If you make the backup via a CD-ROM, make sure the directory is not marked as read-only after you copy it back, or you won't be able to save the work if you turn the conputer off.
