I am planning to load into my new machine this weekend.  I have a good bit

into the wiki for help, I found the following article:

Can I move just my audio carts to another Rivendell System?

Q: I would like to do a total Rivendell database overhaul and basically
start over with a new system setup. The only thing that I would like to
keep is my music library. Is there a way that I can keep the music data
(name, artist, album, scheduler codes, etc.) and easily integrate it back
into a new rivendell database?

A: You might want to check out the 'rivendell-filter' utility (part of the
'rivendell-importers' package), which was designed to do precisely this
sort of thing --i.e. copy carts from one Rivendell DB to another.

Note: See /usr/share/doc/rivendell/RIVENDELL_FILTER.txt on a computer with
Rivendell installed for more information.

I entered the above path and it gave me a "no such file or directory"
error.  Are there further directions elsewhere?  Anyone have any tips on
making this sort of move?  Will moving the database do the same or just the
