In Netscape under BOOKMARKS you can import your favorites from Internet Explorer. If this doesn't work for some reason you would have to go through NETSCAPE setup again and when asked in the wizard you can import during setup.

You can try to move (or copy) the files directly. I don't know much about Netscape, but the favorites are probably just links like IE. Just find the favorites folder for Netscape (you can do a search or manually look for it) and then move (or copy) the files to c:/windows/favorites/. If you are not using a win9x/winME OS you the favorites folder may be in a slightly different place.
Here are some links to 3rd party software programs that might work if the above doesn't. Remember to remove anyspaces TechRepublich adds.

Just a quick warning, I haven't tried any of these.
Hope this helps.

some of the 3 party might work but the few I tried seemed to get lost moving in the same machine. Will try to go through a server or disk
