No Idea... Linux Mint User and I regularly break it.
I would, probably incorrectly, assume that if you still had your old G5
with the Old Version of GPG Installer Suite on it then there will be an
Export Keys Function which you would use to Export your Public and
Private keys to a USB drive.
Then you would plug your USB drive up your new iMac and use the New
Version of GPG Installer Suite which is likely to have an Import Keys
Function to drag your old Keys onto your New Computer... I assume you
have a PostIt note with the passphrase on.
Apologies if that was either wrong or a bit tongue in cheek.
