If both computers have an ethernet port (the new one will for sure) you could
buy a Cat5e "cross-over" cable and network them. Turn on file and printer sharing and share the folders you want to copy on the Win 2000 machine. Then you can access them from the XP computer and drag'n'drop the files into the folders where you want to put them.
XP has a wizard to help you transfer files and settings from an old computer if you want settings as well as documents - see the help.
Having said that, if the process is likely to be brief then using a USB flash drive as suggested before would be by far the simplest way.
