Well, ~/.gnome/GnuCash -- but the rest should be sufficient.

You said you put it onto a different disk..  Are you sure the _FULL_ path
is the same?  It's still /home/john/...???  If so I can't imagine why
it's not finding your reports..  Unless you're upgrading from 1.6.
Are there any error messages on the terminal?

WTF?  Why do so many people think you need to learn scheme to hack on
GnuCash?  80% of the fricken code is in C!!!  Sure, there are areas that
are pure scheme, like reports, but JEEZ...

Besides, scheme is easy to learn..  Someone else (who will hopefully
speak up) taught himself scheme in a day.  Go read a few websites
while you pull down the g2 branch and get it building.. :)

Also, there are lots of non-coding tasks to be done, like documenting
which features are still unimplemented or don't work right.
