Where does Win 98 store the bookmarks file for IE 5x? I would like to import the bookmarks stored in IE on my old computer (Win 98) which is connected via peer to peer to my new computer running Win 2000. This should be easy! Am I just stupid? Don't answer that.

In IE go to file -->import and export, and export your favorites, put them on a floppy, and then on the other, file -->import/export and import them
follow the wizard

Just saw over the LAN, then follow the wizard, and save them as a file, transfer the file over the LAN, and import them
BTW the only stupid question is the one not asked
