1: Use an external storage device such as as a usb pen flash memory (or whatever it's called) or a usb external hard disk. Copy the data to be transfered from the old computer into the device, move it to the new computer and paste it there.
2: Take out the hard disk from the old computer and connect it to the new one. If it's an IDE drive (a broad cable connect it to the motherboard) then attach it to the new computer as slave. This will make sure that the new computer will not try to boot from the old disk. Copy the data and paste it to the new computer. You may consider leaving the old disk permanently in the new computer. This will give you extra storage volume and may be used as a backup.
3: You can buy a cross-over lan cable and connect the ende to the lan cards of the two computers (you must disconnect the present connection to your modem or router to enable this connection). You have to create a "Small Home or Office Network". This will create a network of the two computers. Each will have the same network's name (e.g Home, User or whatever) and each computer will have a different name. Sharing documents should be enabled. Now you can transfer data from the old computer into the shared folder on the new one, and from there copy and paste it to wherever you decide.
4: If the data you have to move is very limited you can attach it to a mail that you send to yourself from the old computer. Downloade the mail in your new computer and move the files to wherever you like.
