Generally speaking, you'll want to export all database tables, then tar up 
the entire catalog root tree (use the -p switch to preserve file 
attributes) and copy it to the new location. Once there, un-tar, edit 
variable.txt for any path or URL changes, add a Catalog directive for the 
new catalog to interchange.cfg and fire it up. Also, don't forget the 
images directory from the catalog from the http document root. Check the 
images symlink in the catalog directory to ensure it is still valid for the 
new location.
