Download and install Mozilla and the email program you want to use on the new PC. (OR - If you have the original installation files for these programs you can copy them to the new PC and run them there.) Then look for the Files and Settings Transfer wizard (FAST) in XP (Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools). It will guide you through transferring your settings from the old PC to the new one.

Do I now install latest version from moz website,

Sounds like this would be the easiest course of action.

Tried to use transfer wizard but old PC transfer wizard setup is differnt from new PC did not work

You only run the transfer wizard from the new PC. Get it to create a floppy disk "Wizard disk" which you then run in the old PC to gather your settings. The wizard will guide you through the process. You don't need to run the transfer wizard (if there was one) that is on the old PC at all.

how do I install from program files on new PC now that I have it there

Sorry I don't know what you're asking here.
