Provided your original server is at least 0.8.8, the upgrade process should work, so just copy over the database. If your RRD files are on a system with 32-bit and you are moving to 64-bit, you can't just move them, you will have to export them, copy them, recreate the RRD files and import them (there's tutorials for this on the web). Finally, you'd have to upgrade your plugins and you will find that some are not supported under 1.2.x because they've not been maintained or have been integrated into the core.
