Move public folders

Re: Exchange server.
I have had to build a new server for a client whose hardware was about to fail.
New hardware install went well and SBS 2003 R2 went in with no worries. I was able to move all users from the old (SBS 2003) to the new with no issues (including all mail) but I forgot to move the public folders.
I now have the situation where the old server has been removed from the network and I need to move the public folders from the old to the new server. I can still get into the old server and see the public folders and their contents but I can't see any way to "export" them.
How do I copy the public folders to a flash or portable drive (say) and have them available on the new server? Is there anything like exmerge that will do the job, that is to export the public folders as a pst file ready to be imported into a users mail folder?
Note that I have searched but all the responses here seem to require that the two servers are connected. This is not possible in this case.
What should I do?
