you could try exporting them from File on the toolbar to My Docs or similar. Then all you would have to do is copy them to a CD from that location.

just to help a bit, when you click on File on the Toolbar, you'll see Import and Export; the wizard then presents you with a window where you can choose to Export Favorites. Click on this and you will be able to choose where you want to save your Favorites.

Right click on the link in "favourites" and select "send to". I suggest sending them to a new folder you create in my documents named "favourites" or similar. Then when you have done them all (I think you have to right click them individually) copy that folder to a floppy or CD.

micklemouse's suggestion seems a lot simpler!
