[Mailman-Users] Moving mailman to new server and upgrading mailman

I'm looking for some advice, here's the situation:
I have mailman 1.x installed on server 'A'. We're upgrading mailman to
2.x but we're also moving it to server 'B'. On server 'A' the install
directory for mailman is /usr0/mailman. On server 'B' the install
directory for mailman is going to be /usr1/mailman.
Symlinking /usr0/mailman to /usr1/mailman on server 'B' is NOT an option.
Would it be easier to just do a fresh install of mailman 2.x on server 'B'
and manually migrate the lists from the old server following the steps in
"UPGRADING" and fixing whatever else may arise. Or should I copy the
installation on server 'A' to server 'B' go through and make all the
changes where the path is wrong and then do a make install of mailman 2.x
on top of mailman 1.x? Or is there some much easier way to do this?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
