The most practical as said by Doug Or is the Air France bus that takes you directly from CDG to ORY.
Alternative means is by RER or the suburban train. You have to take RER B direction St Remy les chevreuse, descend at Antony to take the Orly Val (the automatic train going to terminals in ORY). There is an RER ticket window and station at CDG2, from CDG 1 it is even less practical since you have to take a shuttle to the station.

Yes, avoid the RER. The RER is great if you're getting around the Paris area with no luggage or time constraints. However, you'll most likely be travelling with bags, and you'll have a connection to make. The RER trains are nice, however they involve transfers, and the transfers have the potential to be very confusing to a non-Parisian. I've flown into CDG many times and taken the crosstown Air France bus to Orly for a connection. It's your best bet.
