There are several choices. Here are a few ways:



1. E-mail the data from the old machine and read it on the new
one.

2. Network the two machines and transfer the data over the
network.

3. Remove the drive from the old computer and install it
temporarily (or even pemanently) in the new computer.

4. Use floppies and span the larger files over several diskettes
using a file splitting program (or any standard zip utility,
which can also do this).

5. Copy the files to CDs

6. Copy the files to a USB thumb drive.

Which of these is best for you depends on several things: how
much data you have to transfer, whether you plan to keep the old

computer, whether you are willing to spend a few dollars for a
thumb drive if you don't have one, etc.
