Per Microsoft:

Moving the Files

After you have created the new site collections, sites, and document libraries, you can use one of the following methods to copy files onto the server:

"      Dragging files into the Explorer View of a document library
"      Creating a network place (Web folder) shortcut to the document library
"      Using a tool in another application compatible with Windows SharePoint Services, such as the Upload Multiple Files control provided with Microsoft Office 2003

No matter which method you use, keep security issues in mind. Permissions settings for the files on the file server are not transferred to the document library automatically. Decide what level of permissions you want to give users in your organization in the new document library, and set those permission levels before you begin moving files into the document library. If you move documents into a document library that uses default security settings, you might be giving access to users who should not have access.
Simply mapping a network drive will do the trick, then drag and drop.
