you cannot transfer it from one machine to another it contains plugins that are in the system folder.

sorry.

if you want it on the mini take your disk 2 from your old mini and reinstall it from the media

Ok...the menu section on the left of the photos where it list various things of what you might want to do...to make special collections of certain photos. Like I got to go to Tuscany on a 2 week painting trip & I had certain photos in a folder that I want ed to paint. Had a folder of paintings that I had already done...etc...

All of a sudden it disappeared... realistically I know I must of done something...but I have no Idea what!

It is similar to the menu in iTunes .....Thanks for asking

Ok, thank you. If you launch iPhoto and then
choose "File" from your Menu Bar that runs
along the top of your desktop, then choose
"New Album".......what happens?

Sounds like what you are missing is the "Source List"

Close iPhoto...

Go to ~/Library/Preferences/ then locate and delete the com.apple.iPhoto.plist

Restart iPhoto

PLease check back with the results.

If by "it" you mean the plist file, no need to reinstall as a new one was created when you restarted iPhoto.
