you don't transfer data between cpus...

but you do between computers and operating systems.

What versions are you using? XP has a transfer wizard...

You can't transfer installed programs .
You can transfer personal folders/files.

The easiesr way is with a USB flash drive, AKA: jump drive or thumb drive.

Simply send the files to the drive, plug it into the new computer, & transfer the files to My Documents.

if its a lot of files with XP or vista they make a USB cable and software. Ive always found it easier with a lot of files to simply network the two computers together and transfer files that way. :D
