[Mailman-Users] Moving to another server

We currently maintain mailman 2.0.6 (ancient :-) on our old server. We
have recently installed a new server that has mailman 2.1.4 installed. I
would like to get some advice on moving our 30 listservs over. The 2
servers are located in the same rack, and are in the same domain. 

Some of the questions in my mind is what files we need to migrate. I
know that the archives need only be copied, but should I copy the
~mailman/lists/<listname> directories or should we create new lists on
the new server, and add the list members et. al. My preference is to
migrate only a few lists at the time, but I am also concerned with the
list management web pages (eg. <domain>/mailman/listinfo/<listname>).
