Try looking for the nk2 file in
C:\users\username\appdata\roaming\microsoft\outlook (where you replace "username" as appropriate for the particular user)

On XP, use
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
or the text which Mingano quoted, i.e. %appdata%/microsoft/outlook
