Using the Apple instructions I downloaded my backed up iTunes folder from my external hard drive to new OS.
But, the music doesn't populate my new iTunes. When I pull up the music folder it displays a small red icon on the lower right of the folder and when I click on the folder the message I get tells me I don't have permission to see it. So, it's on my hard drive but I can't presently access it.
I'll go back to Pogue's manual looking for assistance because I'm stumped by this one.
Kind of interesting to resolve these problems, though.

EDIT: Figured it out using Pogue's book. I just added myself to the list of users for that file and gave myself Read/Write permission then dragged the formerly locked music file onto the iTunes icon on the tool bar. Twenty minutes later, a mirror image of my previous music library. Too cool.
