Go to your "My Network Places" and select all of the sites you wish to migrate.  Right click and copy.  Paste them onto a thumb drive or whatever means you use to get stuff to your new PC.

Once you have the thumb drive/whatever on the new PC, copy/paste them into:
c:\users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Network Solutions

I just did it.  So it doesn't carry over the passwords?

and by the way, thank you chirk.  I have about 30 sites but now it looks like I'll have to find all the passwords again...  Unless somebody has another solution.

You can view the passwords on the XP machine by using a tool such as LSA secrets viewer

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/lsa_secrets_view.html

or running control userpasswords2
then clicking manage passwords on the advanced tab

(the second one may not work on xp)
