How to export all favorites, not just links? Internet Explorer.

Hello,
 I am trying to setup my favorites list on multiple computers but there is a problem. The export feature in IE7 only exports html links. I have many other links to network locations (which are not html) that are in my favorites. For some reason these do not export along with the html links. My only solution is to set each one of my network links, by hand, on each computer.

If anyone knows how to export all of these links please let me know.

Some possible ideas:
1) export links directly from file. (but where are the links stored on the harddrive?)
2) find a magical setting that enables the export of other then .html links.

Much thanks!

You can grab anything in your favorites following these simple directions:

1) Go to "My Computer"
2) Double click "Local Disk C:"
3) Double click "Document and Settings"
4) Double click YOUR PROFILE NAME.
5) Double click "Favorites"

From here a window will appear displaying anything you have in your favorites.
You can then go to "Edit" at the top, choose "Select All", then "Edit" and "Copy".

This will copy all your favorites to the clipboard of your computer
Open up your flash drive and go to "Edit" then "past".

This will paste your favorites onto the flash drive, you can then go to the other computer and COPY them back to your Favorites folder using the above method.
