Default Transfer data

I currently have a Sony Vaio and just bought a Dell E1705. I want to transfer my files from the old to the new and I already have a crossover cable.
1.) Do I need anything else to do this?
2.)What do I have to do to each computer to set up the transfer?
3.) As far as bookmarks for Firefox, can I transfer those over as well?
