I have an old breaker box that I am replacing with a new. The new box is about 45 feet away. I would like to connect the old to the new temporarily until I get everything hooked up to the new so I do not lose any usage of outlets etc. How can this be done?

@pvtsam,
The most straightforward approach would be to connect both boxes to the main so that you can turn on circuits as you move them, but this really isn't worth the effort. Shut down house power, move all the circuits and bring everything back up on the new box.
