Hi, complete newbie so apologies if this is an obvious question. I've got Mandrake 10.1 installed in a dual boot with XP. What I would like to know is there an easy way to import all my favourites from IE into Mozilla on my Linux install?
MAny thanks in advance.

What I did (between Windows ME and SuSE but it should be similar with your setup) was to install firefox in windows and get firefox to import the bookmarks from IE. Then I found the bookmarks.html for firefox (your path to it will be different than mine but you can just use the windows 'find files and folders' program) copied it over to my linux partition and used it to replace the bookmarks.html that was in ~/.mozilla/firefox/evn6ayfp.default/ the default mozilla browser also uses a bookmarks.html (which is probably compatable with firefox's though it might be better to save it as bookmarks.html_old so that you can go back to it if something goes wrong) the path to it for me is ~/.mozilla/default/z5d301s1.slt/bookmarks.html yours will probably be similar.

Hope this helps
