can't find history, cookies and temp folder

I've recently had to reinstall XP. Before the install I used to be able to go to my computer>c>document and settings>user>local settings and they would all be in that folder. However since the reinstall I can't find the local settings folder, I've done a search to no avail. I'd be grateful for any help. Thanks

a hidden folder and explorer isn't showing it to you by default. In explorer go to tools - Folder options - view - and check "show hidden files and folders" and see if it works.

Isn't a hidden file on Windows 2000 - but mayber in Xp ;)

Yes, I can see it now, thanks Sethhaniel. I went to tools>folder options> view tab then ticked show hidden files and folders.
