I think I've got it, try this

The INI file should look like this:
[URL0]
name=SOFTSEEK
URL=http://www.softseek.com
[URL1]
name=DOWNLOAD.COM
URL=http://www.download.com


The save it as 'urls.ini' in your project folder. Then the rest is cut'n'paste:

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
  IniFile: TIniFile;
  i: Integer;
  Section,FName,FURL: String;
begin
  IniFile:= TIniFile.Create(ExtractFilePath(ParamStr(0))+'Urls.ini');
  i:= 0;
  Repeat
    Section:= 'URL'+IntToStr(i);
    FURL:= IniFile.ReadString(section,'URL','');
    FName:= IniFile.ReadString(section,'Name','');
    If FName<>'' then
    Begin
      ListBox1.Items.Add(FName);
      ListBox2.Items.Add(FURL);
    End;
    Inc(i);
  Until FName='';

end;
