The file systems are compatible so you'll be fine In Internet Explorer click on File>Import/Export and follow the prompt to export the favorites to your zip Then in IE on the XP PC, do the same thing except this time choose the Import option to import them from the floppy.

If you dont have a zip drive on the XP you can just copy the files from one computer to another? When I upgraded from Win98 to XP there was no problem keeping the same favorites


You can also use TweakUI for XP to have the files point to a different location on your hard drive This way it doesn't have to be tied to your user directory

You can also go to This is a free service that allows u to export your favorites and files to the site so you can use you bookmarks from any pc connected to the web It will also allows you to import the files from the site back to your pc I have done this several times when ive had to reformate or get a new pc This is a great backup for your favorites or files.

let me know how it goes.
