Pulling files from Sharepoint

We are currently migrating a customer from WSS 3.0 to Sharepoint Server Enterprise 2010. I know we can't really do a direct upgrade through the typical techniques, and we don't really want to (the WSS configuration is completely borked anyway, so starting over is preferred). The WSS server is currently used as a file repository and discussion database with a number of links for users. What we would like to do is pull the files stored in the old database and move them into the new one. If all we can do is pull the files from the old server, that's fine. I have no problems putting them into the new server manually. I'm wondering if there is a utility or technique I can use that will allow me to pull the files in bulk and then put them into the right place in the new server. Does anyone know how to do this?

you can export files from WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007 using Database Exporter:

(the link says sharepoint 2003, but it works for WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007, too)

i don't think it works on 2010 version, so you will need to upload to 2010.  but you can at least export using that tool.

here is a similar tool:

I found the SPIEFolder tool before you posted, but I'll give you the points anyway. Uploading them to 2010 is pretty easy since it has an Upload Multiple Files option when you add files to a document library. Though I did end up adding about 35 files one at a time before I saw it :S
