Playlists in Windows Media Player

Soon I will be doing a new install of Win 7.
I would like to be able to make a BU of my playlists for later importing to my new installation. Some questions please:-
   !. where do I find the playlists so that I am able to back them up?
   2. I'm only assuming it is possible to import the playlists from the BU. Is this so? And how do I do it?

Many thanks in advance.

Thank you, FileRunt. I've made the BU to another partition. I'll start the New install later today, after I wake up!

R u still there, FileRunt?
A bit moe on this question in my original post:-
"I'm only assuming it is possible to import the playlists from the BU. Is this so? And how do I do it?"
   HOW do I import? I do not see any Import/export menu items in WMP.
Thanks.

First, its FireRunt, not FIleRunt...no big deal though.

If you dont have the import function, just place the playlist, and music files in EXACTLY the same folder it was in on the previous machine.  This way it will index the music correctly.
