migrating from seagate info 7.5 to crystal enterprise 9

migrating from seagate info 7.5 to crystal enterprise 9

Hi everyone I could really use some help, it would be appreciated greatly.
My current project is to migrate Seagate info 7.5 to crystal decisions 9.0.  I don’t have a lot of experience with either but I really need to get this done.  Having referred to some online support docs as well as the handbooks I am no closer to a successful migration then I was before.  I have CR 9 set up on a win server 2003 box at the moment and tried using the import wizard to import the APS, some folders and user groups were imported however any objects like reports were not.  

My 7.5 info setup is as follows:
Seagate 7.5 uses an oracle db + driver
All reports and folders are stored on a win shared directory named ‘info Reports’
And the SGATEDEV.COMP.COM directory is also on a win shared drive

So far I have looked at my crystal 9 setup and was wondering if under servers I should name the input and output server to the directory ‘info reports’?  

If anyone has successfully migrated from 7.5 – 9 or has any suggestions it would be so very much appreciated.  I am unbelievably stuck.  Thanks for your help.
