Export the WP-Forum associated tables from the old site and import them into the new site.  If you are using a hosting company you can do this using phpMyAdmin.  It will create all the tables for you.

If you're unsure about which tables are associated you may need to look at the wp-forum code to see what tables it creates when it it's freshly installed.  If it alters existing tables you'll need to know that as well.

The other option is to install wp-forum on your new site and export only the data from the old site and import it into your new site, it will insert the data into the tables that your new install created.  You'll need to make sure everything is named the same though.
