What version are you using?  If your using one of the newer database
driven versions then I'm not sure how to backup the files.  If your on
the current stable 2.2.9 then you backup the data files, move them to
your new computer, install GNUCash 2.2.9 on that machine and then open
your data file.  Your then back in business and ready to go.
