It depends on the speed of the slowest modem of the pair. This would probably take a year as well. Can you not use Direct Cable Connection between the two computers?

If you still have access to the old computer - remove the hard drive from it and put it in the new computer and configure it as slave, and use explorer to copy from the old disk to the new.

direct cable is a good idea but u think it's worth buying the cable
a serial cable

...do you know anyone with a CD-Burner? They may be happy to assist. Discs are relatively cheap and, as a bonus,your files will be backed-up.
