-P <profile>        Start with <profile>
-ProfileManager     Start with profile manager

 SET MOZILLA_HOME=F:\INTERNET\MOZ

 In OS/2 have above line in config.sys, choose your path. Then from command line do as
example: firefox.exe -ProfileManager. Create new profile.

 Next create program object with path:\firefox.exe
Parameter: -P FF10 use your profile name instead of FF10

 All necessary directories will be created. You do not need any manual creation.

In Windoze may need to specify path to profile in Parameters: -P path\FF10

 All profile info will be below the moz_home tree which can be copied.

        Cal

Just a short question regarding the WinXP browsers, i.e. Chrome, FF and
Opera - can the settings (i.e. bookmarks, history, userID's and
passwords be exported to a file on the r: partition (FAT32) which is
visible in both OS2 and XP - handy if one must download some stuff that
can't be downloadedd in OS2 or XP?

Bookmarks, history, permissions, mail,,, do not need to be "exported to
files".  They ARE files.  The "backup utility" is COPY;  which is easier
with a file manager.
