You guys are going about this all wrong. OS X has an app called Migration Assistant that is designed to do exactly what you're wanting here. You can find it in Applications\Utilities. You hook up one machine to the other and migrate Applications/Entire Accounts/Files/Settings/etc. from the old machine to the new. It's the easiest thing in the world compared to other OSes.

The only issue is how to go about connecting the two computers together, because there are several different methods to go about it. If you have firewire on both machines and have a firewire cable, this would be the easiest and fastest method by far. Simply boot the old one into Firewire mode by holding down the T key at startup, connect it to the new one, and run Migration Assistant. If you don't have firewire ports or cables, you can also do this across the network. Connect both to the same network, run migration assistant on the new one and follow the instructions.

This page will pretty much tell you everything you need to know: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4413

Let me know if you have any questions....
