The Google support forum has a solution, there are more threads like this if you search "export labels" in the Gmail help section.

From the second post on that link:
Quote:
You could use Windows Live Mail. Install it on your PC. Connect to your Hotmail account using default methods. Connect to your Gmail using IMAP. In WLM, the IMAP hierarchy will mimic Gmail's labels and you can copy messages across to the Hotmail image. Note that WLM uses a httpmail protocol to link to Hotmail - that is a synchronising protocol like IMAP so the copying will be into your online Hotmail account.

WLM is Windows Live Mail, the guy who I quoted is saying that you install WLM and login with your Hotmail account. After you are signed in with Hotmail you sign in with your GMail account using IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol). Unless WLM works in WINE you will probably need access to a Windows computer to do this.

I dont understand this "After you are signed in with Hotmail you sign in with your GMail account using IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol). Unless WLM works in WINE you will probably need access to a Windows computer to do this."
and I have dual boot xp pro sp3/Kubuntu, both O/S with hotmail and gmail?

You can search Google for instructions on how to set the accounts up, I'm sure using the search parameter "WLM gmail IMAP" will bring up some good results.
