Sharing Mozilla 1.4 bookmarks b/w Win2k & RH9 (dual boot)

Dual-boot Win2k/RH9
I have worked fstab to allow me to read/write to win2k partition
Iwould like to have my Mozilla 1.4 on RH9 use the Win Mozilla bookmarks file
I dont want to synch the bookmarks
I dont want to have 2 sets of bookmarks

Basically I want one bookmark file that both browsers use, write to, etc.

I want to be able to bookmark something, and later in the day when I am on the other OS, not have to remember how I found the page or try to remember the url.

One set of bookmarks shared between 2 browsers

Is this doable?

I'm not sure you can, unless you can direct Mozilla to look for the bookmark file in a certain dir, that is not one of its own subdir's. Going back and forth between the two OS's isn't the problem, rather the location of the actual bookmark file in relation to the rest of the Mozilla program directories. Check on the Mozilla site, maybe they can help.

Perhaps if you were to create a symbolic link to the win2k mozilla's bookmark file in your Red hat mozilla's bookmard directory,
ln -s source_file destination_file
