    Boot your macbook pro and hold the "t" button while it boots. Then connect the MBP and the MB via firewire and go to Migration Assistant on the macbook. Then select "from another mac" in migrations assistant and transfer any files you want.

    OR you could just go into finder, select the MBP pro volume, and transfer any files you want that way.
