Clone PowerBook to Mini?

What's the best strategy for cloning my old PowerBook to a new Mac Mini?

My PowerBook G4 is my daily workhorse, with all my files and applications. It has recently been upgraded to Tiger. I regularly use SuperDuper! v2.0.1 to do smart updates to various partitions on an external FireWire drive.

A few days ago I bought a new Mac Mini with Tiger, primarily for emergency use if the PowerBook dies or becomes temporarily unavailable, such as during repairs.

I now want to clone my PowerBook to the Mini, so I have all my files and applications available there, and can smart update them there from time to time.

What's the best way to initially do this, so I don't have problems with files, preferences, permissions, and all the rest?

Thanks in advance.
