[Mailman-Users] Moving ~mailman to a new machine

I currently have mailman installed on my home machine and use fetchmail
to grab list posts, process them on my machine, and then post them. I
am going to be replacing my mailserver with a freeBSD machine and want
to move mailman to that machine.
I want the move to be transparent to the users with the exception that
the webface address will change to match the listname domain.
what prep steps do I need to take once I get mailman installed on the
BSD machine before I move all the lists over? Can I move all the lists
intact including users and archives, or do I need to recrate the lists?
what's the best way? I'm thinking that simply tarring up the ~mailman
and depositing it on the new machine is NOT the best idea.
