  • Milestone changed from 7.0 to 7.2

Moving this to 7.2. Not quite sure how we would accomplish this, since we don't have a windows installer at the moment, and some of those settings may not directly translate to BSD. I'll give some thought to it though, may be able to come up with something :P

need some script which do:
mount FAT/NTFS drives with Windows, propose choose correct if there more than one;
looks which users there exists by folders;
propose select user(s) which "My Documents" files should be pulled;
Finds IE, FF, Opera's bookmarks
Asks to which browser(s) bookmarks should be copied? (Konq, FF, WinFF, Opera, WineIE)
Copy Outlook files to home/Outlook and tell user select this dir when Thunderbird propose migrate (if it can do this under BSD)
Forget wallpaper, cookies and saved passwords
