If you have a second computer that have windows XP you could use the File transfer and setting wizzard which will copy all the files and settings from another computer, all you have to do is conect both computer so they can be able to see ech other and run the wizzard.

you could also take the hard drive from the Win Me computer conect it as slave into the computer running XP and either copy the files directly from the hard drive (you would have to know where these files are located) or just run the wizzard and you are done.
