And the easiest way to guarantee that is to copy the three keyring files
(pubring.gpg, secring.gpg, trustdb.gpg) from one machine to the other.
Using Olav's example from above, they would go into
"C:\Documents and Settings\Sean\Application Data\GnuPG\". On *nix systems, the
default location is the much easier to type ~/.gnupg.
