Smile Solved: Evolution v.2.8.0: Need to import addressbook from Evolution v.2.2.2

Solved: I did a clean install of Fedora Core 6, which includes Evolution v.2.8.0. My previous installation (Fedora Core 4, with Evolution v.2.2.2) used addressbook.db I have imported all of my e-mail, but, I cannot import the Contact information. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated! If this will not work, how can I import addressbook.db into Mozilla Thunderbird v. TIA, Lanny

Solution: While Evolution was not running, I moved the old addressbook.db file into .evolution/addressbook/local/system/addressbook.db, replacing the new addressbook.db file created when I first opened Evolution, after installing Fedora Core 6. Then, I restarted the box. My 117 contacts are there now.
