We're planning to do the same thing; I have 3.8.10 as my production system
and I have set up 4.0.2 as the new system.  Right now 4.0.2 is set up and
running but I have not imported the 3.8.10 database.

question is how do I get the 3.8.10 database data into the rt4 database?

Do I just do the mysql dump thing:

mysql -u #username# -p rt4 < rt3.dump

and then run

/opt/rt4/sbin/rt-setup-database --prompt-for-dba-password --action upgrade
