    You didn't specify what flavor of OS your using... You'll at least have to move over /etc/passwd /etc/group and /etc/security/ The new machine should ideally create new users with the same group as the old machine; if not then it adds an extra step. Depending on your setup I would use either rsync or tar to copy the /home folder to the new machine.
