I installed clients on a few different machines this week (Mac OS 10.6.7 and client 0.3.21). 

I'd like to consolidate them all to one.  Can I just copy wallet files all onto one machine? 

Or do I need to:

1.  Start the client on each machine
2.  Wait for it to get up to speed block-count wise
3.  Send the BTC's to my "main wallet" so to speak on my "main computer"

I hope it's the former.  I like the idea of a bunch of wallets I can keep on an encrypted USB drive.

Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

you can keep them separate in different folders on same computer if you want to keep the name "wallet.dat".  if u put them in same folder you'll have to change the name.  when u want to then open one or another wallet from the client on this computer, you'll have to move the wallet into the Bitcoin data directory and the name has to be "wallet.dat".

another way to do it is to create several Bitcoin directories and then pt the client to which ever you want to open using:

"C:\Program Files\Bitcoin\bitcoin.exe" -datadir=F:\newDataDir
