Moving Files To A New Computer

Hello: After several years, I am finally upgrading and purchasing a new computer. My dilemma is moving files onto this new computer. My operating system on both computers is Windows XP. 1. I need advice moving my Thunderbird Email and Email folders onto this new computer. I understand that emails are really embedded and can be a problem. I also need assistance moving my FIREFOX bookmarks. I would really hate to loose those bookmarks! 2. I then plan to copy all my document files onto a CD using Nero and then recopying to the new computer. 3. I plan to go through the arduous task of reinstalling all my programs. That is my plan; however, I want to insure I am not overlooking a vital task! I really do need assistance moving my email and bookmark files. If I have missed anything, please advise. Thanks in advance. Bruce Thompson
