You need to configure replication in the public folder properties.
Add your new Exchange 2007 onto the replica list. Public folders ->properties -> replication tab
Wait for the replication to complete - might take a while depending upon the size.
Remove the replication.

Just replicate the folders to the other server. You can use the public folder manager to add servers to the list of replicas. Then wait for Exchange to replicate the data.
