Use smaigrate:

smigrate -w http://server1/sites/site1 -f \\share\folder\site1.fwp


smigrate -r -w http://server1/sites/abc/new site1 -f \\share\folder\site1.fwp

My knowledge base is strictly WSS and since you didn't specify which
version of Sharepoint you're using I'll chime in.

You can use SMIGRATE to move  subsites (also called webs) from one Site
Collection to another. If site1 is a subsite in your example than
SMIGRATE will do exactly what you want to do. You'll have to recreate
your permissions but Keith Ritchie has written some utilities to ease
that pain. Google for SPUserUtil to get started down that road.

You can use STSADM to move Site Collections around If in your example
site1 is a Site Collection than STSADM will do what you want to do.
