Need Help to Transfer blog

Hi everyone. Phin has been helping me transfer my blog ( to but he has a new family member and hasn't been able to help. Can anyone help me with the transfer? I can set up someone to get into my .com (mt 3.2) if there is someon that can help transfer the archives and current stuff. I'm paid up for April at the old site, but really am a dunce when it comes to knowing enough to make the transfer. If anyone can help, it will be greatly appreciated.

You can keep your domain name too, and just copy the files. That way old links to your blog will still work.

I sort of have a similar problem, except that I no longer have access to my blog on Typepad. However, before surrendering access I archived and saved all the posts. I don't think the comments were included. The format isn't all that important to transfer, but I could use some advice on setting that up.

The main thing I'm concerned about is that I'm not sure how to get DNS management to point to the address so that people typing in my domain name will be directed to the site. I've set up the Cnames for and but do I also need an A record? If so, do I have a unique IP address or does it just go to the front page. If I ping all I get is Should I use URL forwarding instead of DNS management?
