If you boot the old computer into Target Disk Mode by holding down the T key at startup (a firewire logo should appear on the screen if successful), you turn that computer into a dumb external hard drive. Connect it to the newer computer with a FireWire cable, and the icons for the old computer will appear on the desktop of the new computer. Drag and drop the files where you need them to go. Transfer should be fairly quick.
