If you're using MOSS and you have the appropriate permissions, you can use the View All Site Content link under site actions (or append /_layouts/sitemanager.aspx to the site URL). Browse to the item and click Move.

If you're using WSS, you can either use the Sent To option to send a copy to a different doc library, then delete the original.

Or probably easiest in any scenario is just to open the site in Windows Explorer and drag & drop the file to the new library

The best way is to use the object model, as it actually conserves the meta data and other related details.

Have a look around the link: http://geek.hubkey.com/2007/12/move-sharepoint-document-library-files.html 

Hope it helps.

Let me know how it goes.
