You have a few options:

1. Copy data to an external drive (USB 2.0 or Firewire) then from the drive to the new machine.
2. Copy the data from one machine to the other over the network.
3. Connect the machines with a crossover cable and copy data from one to the other.

How much data are we talking about?
What kind of data?

There a few things that you need to let us know before we will best know how to help you.

What type of data are you talking about? A few Word documents? Email? A profile?

How much data are we talking about? (a couple of MB or a couple of GB?)

What types of connections do you have on the notebooks? Do both have ethernet ports? Are they on a network? Are they older notebooks that only have Serial or Parallel ports?

Plug in the drive,
copy the documents to the usb drive,
take the usb drive to the second notebook,
copy the documents to the second notebook.
