It is user friendly - that's why it asks you to migrate all of your info in the very beginning during the setup of your new Mac.
Migration Assistant creates a new user after it does its job. There's no way around that.
You can either manually move the files over from your PC into the Mac or you can use MA, let it create a new user and then share those files between the new user and your current user. When you're done you can then delete the newly (and now empty) migrated user. You cannot migrate files from another computer and have them placed into your current user.

Thanks for your input. I have placed the folders I want to share in both the public file and shared file which my existing user account should have access to. I've even made sure I have file sharing turned on in my preferences of both user accounts but for some reason when I try to access them from my existing user account there is a red neg sign and it says I don't have access. Any thoughts???
