Sorry for the confusion. I want to take the Asus Eee to the library or where ever, since it will have my GRAMPS stuff on it. So it's not a library machine, but my new computer that I will use at the library. I also have GRAMPs at home here. But my understanding is that the Asus Eee will run an earlier version only of GRAMPS. So I am wondering ahead of time about the transfer of information between my two computers since they will be running different versions.

What you are suggesting is to use the "library" or "my new" computer as a reference only, yes...I suppose that would work too!

Thank you,
Laura
