you can just use regular file sharing. enable file sharing on both macs in system preferences->sharing. then on mac1 you'll see mac 2 in the sidebar in finder in the Shared section. click on it, connect with your usernname and password and transfer away. the macs need to be on the same local network. for faster connection connect them directly by an ethernet or a firewire cable.
