Gaim .. buddy list

Every time, when I reinstall Linux , all my buddies from my Yahoo, AIM, MSN, ICQ must be added to the list. It's take time (I have long list). Is it possible to save my buddies somehow? In other words, to make "budddies" as "bookmarks". So I can transfer them from one gaim to another gaim.

Never tried it but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Let me know if it does.
