[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.
