This might be stupid question but I am another recent switcher from PC's. I have a 120gb hard drive attached through USB to my Imac. Now I want to take my Imovie files and store them in my external hard drive. How do I do it? I am so used to windows explorer but not really sure how to take file soff the internal drive to istall on external drive. Please help.

You can drag and drop them on the new disk drive. Then you will have to delete them from the old disk.

When you open iMovie, and you start a new project, go to File, click on New Project. A box will open up, put down whatever you want in Save As:, and below is Where:, scroll through that and if your external hard drive is already connected, select it, and your new iMovie project will save straight to the external hard drive.
