How to fix this problem: upgrading a Mac from 10.4 to 10 .5 but "manually"? More details inside!

Upgraded a Mac mini from 10.4 to 10.5. However, the person chose archive and install vs upgrade and they didn't select the option to move the settings to the new system. Or something.
So here's the issue. There's a Mac computer with fresh install of 10.5.8 on it. There's also a Previous System folder on the same machine, same disk, which has all the user accounts, settings, docs music, photos etc, from the previous 10.4 system that was on the computer. How can one completely move all those user accounts, settings etc to the 10.5 system in the most painless way possible? There is no backup of the system on another drive or disk (yes, insane, but there you go).
