you should use Migration Assistant in order to preserve your settings.

For best results, use Setup Assistant when your new Mac first starts up; that will set the new Mac up just like the old one; users, passwords, preferences, permissions, etc.
If your new Mac has Lion, see Using Setup Assistant on Lion
If not, see the slightly-different Using Setup Assistant on Snow Leopard or Leopard.
