You can use the "Files and transfer settings" wizard in XP.

Here is a link to the Microsoft instructions:

I believe if you copy the cookies folder and favorites folder from the user's profile under document and settings along with along with exporting the following registry key (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer) you would essentially copy over the IE settings for that particular user.

Miticide, the transfer wizard oonly copies the history and favorityes.

I will try the registry move tomorrow. I will keep you posted.
