    On the old machine, select File | Import and Export... (in Internet Explorer).
    Click Next, then select Export Favorites, and click Next again.
    Select the folder (Favorites if you want to export all of them), and click Next.
    If desired, change the path or name of the destination file, then click Next.
    Finally click Finish.

    The result will be a HTML file, named bookmark.htm by default. Transfer this file to the new computer by floppy, cd-rom, e-mail, ...

    On the new machine, select File | Import and Export... (in Internet Explorer)
    Click Next, select Import Favorites, and click Next again.
    Browse to the file you brought over from the old computer, then click Next.
    Select a target folder (Favorites if you transfer all of them), then click Next.
    Finally click Finish.

    That'll work too. There is more than one way to skin a cat.
