For Outlook 98 & 2000
 
 - If the folder list is not visible, select View > Folder List.
 - For each root folder, right click and select properties
     - Select Advanced button.
     - Note pathname/filename. (For the one that starts with Outlook Today make a special notation)
     - Click OK twice
 - For each root folder that doesn't start with outlook today.
     - Right click and select Close
     - Close Outlook and any other mapi enable apps.
 - Move all PSTs noted from above.
 - Start Outlook.
 - You will be presented with an error about the missing file and given a change to locate it.
 - Use the File Open dialog to locate the moved PST file. (Use the one that we made a special notation for)
 - Outlook will complain about the change in location and offer to rebuild the outlook bar.  Let it.
 - Use File > Open > Personal Folder to open remaining PST files.
 - Double check your Rules, since these have a tendency to get munged.
 

NOTE:  The Journal get munged as well.  At this time there is no way to correct the links.
