Hi again...

I am using IC 4.6.4 on RH 7.0 (Apache and Perl 5.6).

What is the best way to clone a catalog?  I have invested a lot of time in
customizing a particular catalog and now need two more just like it.  What
is the best way to preserve items, affiliates, shipping settings, templates,
and all other customizations?  Is it enough to export all tables, create a
new catalog based on construct (as I did for the original one), and then
import all tables?  I haven't had much luck just moving directories over to
a new catalog.

Any thoughts?
