We have a citrix farm made up of three citrix servers and are in the process of converting to a citrix environment.  Is there a way to copy IE favorites and bookmarks from a Windows local harddrive to the citrix farm without having to copy every users settings to all three servers.

    Using IE GPO policies or the IEAK custom config to your servers would be the best bet.

    GPO is pretty easy - create a new GPO on your the OU that contains your Citrix servers (create a special Citrix OU if you don't already have your servers in a separate OU).

    Under User Configuration > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > URLs
    is the Favorites and Links setting - set them here and you should be good to go. - has some more info
