Trying to upgrade/revamp my lab

I'm trying to retire some of my older equipment in my lab.  The biggest move will be in migrating my old FreeBSD server to a new one.  Both are currently up and running.

The old:

FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE #0: Fri Jan 12 11:05:30 UTC 2007
CPU: Pentium II/Pentium II Xeon/Celeron (447.69-MHz 686-class CPU)
Origin = "GenuineIntel" Id = 0x652 Stepping = 2
Features=0x183fbff
real memory = 268427264 (255 MB)
avail memory = 252989440 (241 MB)
FreeBSD/SMP: Multiprocessor System Detected: 2 CPUs
cpu0 (BSP): APIC ID: 0
cpu1 (AP): APIC ID: 1

The new:

FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE-p3 #0: Tue Sep 27 18:45:57 UTC 2011
CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+ (2210.20-MHz K8-class CPU)
Origin = "AuthenticAMD" Id = 0x60fb2 Family = f Model = 6b Stepping = 2
Features=0x178bfbff
Features2=0x2001
AMD Features=0xea500800
AMD Features2=0x11f
TSC: P-state invariant
real memory = 1073741824 (1024 MB)
avail memory = 1002987520 (956 MB)
FreeBSD/SMP: Multiprocessor System Detected: 2 CPUs
FreeBSD/SMP: 1 package(s) x 2 core(s)
cpu0 (BSP): APIC ID: 0
cpu1 (AP): APIC ID: 1

I've a LOT of data on the old system that I need to somehow offload and retain onto the new one.  I also have to stand up updates services (mysql, ssh, httpd) and apps (phpbb3, BASE).  I already have the new phpbb3 running (it is NICE), but still have to install BASE (although Snort is installed).

I'll keep you all updated on this.
