    databases are easy...
    copy the MDB/MDE's from your backups to the same file locations (either absolute or relative paths)

    DSN's you'll have to recreate, I don't think there is a capability to backup such data
    you will need to make certain you install any non standard db drivers
    you will need to make certain the IP address is the same if you used IP address security checks on db connections, same for machine / workstation ID
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
