You could

Pull the drive and connect it as a slave in new computer, transfer what you want, and then put it back.

Use direct connect with special cable to transfer(very slow)

Best option would be to install a network card in each machine and use a crossover cable to connect them.

Remember, you can't copy programs from one drive to the next, only data files. Programs have to have the installer ran to install them properly to the os.
