A crossover cable won't help you fix your mount points.

Steven, can you please run this commands on your old box:

sudo mkdir /storage1
sudo mkdir /storage2
sudo mount /dev/sda5 /storage1
sudo mount /dev/sda7 /storage2

and then, on the new computer open dolphin and type this in the address bar:


Now, go into /storage1 and /storage2. Your files *should* be there.
Just copy them to whatever place you like in your new computer.
