Transferring IE & OE personal data to new PC

I have just installed a new Dell 8300 PC with Windows XP. Any suggestions how I can transfer my website favourites, address book and retained emails accross from my old PC which runs on 98SE please. I know that XP has a file transfer process but it isn't easy identifying the appropriate files on my old PC.
thanks

OE files have a *.dbx extension
Address Book I think is *.wab
Look for the favorites folder which will probably fit on a floppy.

Search for the locations on your new system (you may have to search for hidden files and folders).

Thanks tykesutd and Big Elf - I will give them a try.
