3) Open config file in favorite text editor and edit the things needed (base URL, and paths)

4) Test and sit back. Takes less time and provides a better understanding of how Joomla and its file structure works.

This is the way I have done it on all my sites....

sorry i was tired when i made that post. joomla pack is good for moving anything. if you are just moving directories it is still nice.
