phpmyadmin.  Look at installing phpmyadmin.  It allows access to mysql using a
simple web interface.  When I set-up my new SME server, I simply
exported(dumped) the old turba_objects to a file, then imported them into
turba_objects on the new server.  Took just a few minutes.  If you know nothing
of mysql, you need to learn the basics by using phpmyadmin and do the transfer,
or hire someone to do it.  Once the data is in the correct location you may have
to tweak /turba/config/sources.php and/or /imp/config/servers.php to get it working.
