Moving User Configurations from Old System to New

I just acquired a new system.  I have my current system set up the way I like it; each family member has a unique logon and preferences.  After I install Win95 on the new system, what files do I need to copy over to duplicate our settings?  By the way, the new system has no monitor, keyboard, or mouse, so I'll be doing a tape backup and restoring items after I move the tape drive to the new system.

You'll need to manually configure the Passwords control panel on the new machine so that each user can customize their settings.  Then you should restore *.pwl found in the c:\windows directory (these are the password lists for each user, they should begin with the username.pwl).  Then restore the c:\windows\profiles directory and that should be all you need to do.

There we go -- I suspected this was the case, but most of my experience is in the NT arena, where things are a bit, um, different.  Good, concise answer.  Thanks!
