I need to move our data files from our old SuSe Linux server to our new Xandros server without changing any of the files dates, especially the modified date. Does anyone know how to easily do this?

rsync will do it. Specifically, you want to pass it the -t or the -a.

so it'd look something like

rsync -var --rsh="ssh" <src> user@newbox:<dst path>

check the man page for more info.
