I recently installed a new hard drive with XP pro as my MASTER HD. I've connected the original HD with Win 98se as a slave. Will someone please instruct me as to how I can export/copy my bookmarks from the slave to the master.

Open firefox -> select bookmarks -> organize bookmarks -> Import and Backup -> Export Html.

A dialogue box will come up, select save file

- Recommend save it to your desktop.

Copy/Export the "bookmarks.html" file via usb drive or cd.

Lifetweaker,

Thanks for the advice.

Connected original HD with Win 98 as MASTER
Organize Bookmarks/ Export and save to Desktop
Copy from Desktop to A:\floppy
Shut down
Connected new HD with XP Pro as Master
Organize Bookmarks/ Import from Floppy
DONE

Gary
