How to import Mozilla profile between linux and Win2000

Dear Friends,

I am using Mozilla under linux for my email and browser at home. I am also using Mozilla for windows at work. Does anyone know how to move mozilla profile between the two OS? In particular, I like to duplicate my mozilla profile under linux to Win2000.

I have never tried to copy everything in the profile, but I have copied e-mail between windows and linux. Just copy your "Mail" directory found under /home/username/.mozilla/ in linux to the c:/windows/application data/mozilla. Overwrite the old directory and your linux e-mail will be on windows. Before you capy you should empty trash and compact folders. Both computers should be set up with the same account settings. Although I haven't tried it, I think you should be able to copy bookmarks and other things over the same way.
