If you follow the Migrating from MySQL Embedded to MySQL Server section
of the MySQL Server article in the amarok wiki you should have no
problem migrating the database. The process relies on the use of the
mysql tools for dumping a database into a file and loading it back.
You need to do the dump from the original system before switching though.
