Firefox / Thunderbird / Gaim - Migrate profiles from GNU/Linux to Windows

I found that you can migrate profiles from GNU/Linux to Windows by copying the appropriate folders from your home directory:

Gaim:
1. copy ~/.gaim to
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\

Firefox:
1. copy ~/.mozilla/firefox/someGarbage.default to
C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Thunderbird:
1. copy ~/.mozilla-thunderbird/someGarbage.default to
C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles

The GNU/Linux distro is Ubuntu, and I pulled the profiles from an external harddrive with Explore2fs.
