First off, you won't be able to save the OS installation and the installed programs. They need to be reinstalled on your new machine.

You can save you settings and any files that are in My Documents. To use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard create a new folder on your hard drive. This is where you will tell the Wizard to put the info. Start the Wizard by: Start > All Programs > Accessaries > System Tools > Files and Settings Transfer Wizard > Next button

Select Old Computer > Next and wait for the scan. Click the option Other and browse to the folder that you created previously. Click Next. The backup procedure might take up to 10 minutes depending on how many files you have stored.

Burn this backup folder to a CD or copy it to another disk or partition that you will have access to after the new system is set up. Run the wizard again and select New Computer and browse to the stored folder for reading and reinstalling.
