I would install the most recent version on the new machine.
Make sure you use the same paths as on the old system, this makes 
transition a lot simpler.

Then, transfer one .cfg and it's log files at a time, making sure 
each one works properly before moving the next one.

Yes, you will lose a few minutes of data now and then, but that 
cannot possibly be ultra critical, can it?  Once you have done a 
couple of cfg's you will know exactly what to watch for and it will 
go ever quicker.
