WHAT to Transfer?

I am going to replace this OLD/Tired W'XP Puter shortly with a Virgin W'7 64Bit Preparation for that day I am loading up a 16GB Flash Drive with everything I can think of. like My Favorites; My Photos......would you load and copy Cookies? I would LOVE to be able to someway Load and Transfer my Internet Settings and if I need to: my Linksys Router settings??? Don't know where to find those or even if it is possible to do that???
PLEASE share with me what you think I should use this big storage stick to transfer to the new 'puter - and where/how if necessary????
