Default Transferring contacts for outlook 2003

I need to transfer my contact list to sa new computer. The instructions I got were create a transfer.pst file from the old system and copy it onto the new system. Then go into Outlook on the new system, right click and Copy "Transfer". The only option when I right click with a "Copy" seems to be to copy the current Contacts folder, which on my new system is of course empty. Can someone help me with either a clarification or a way to transfer? I'm on Vista with Office 2003.

You could also copy the PST file from the old computer, put it on a thumb drive and take it to the new computer. From there, you can IMPORT just the contacts, you don't have to take it all, into the contacts folder on the new computer.
In Outlook, File / Import and Export... and follow the wizard through exporting to a Personal Folders File (.pst).
