-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.

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.

Ok, that settles that. But She have two questions regarding the new
profile, (1) does the r:\mozilla.org be creating the new profile or must
it be created before the new profile is configured? Ana what charset
should She have for the new profile? In the old profile it's set to
UTF-8 for outgoing mails because She have cited things which was in
US-ASCII and also contained the Swedish alphabet's three tail chars, Å,
Ä and Ö.

The easy way to insure you get a profile where you want it is:

Go to a partition that can be accessed by all OSs that you want to
access that profile.  Do not use a partition that has an OS on it.

Create a sub-directory anywhere you want and name it anything you want.

It appears you are using SM.  Put the SM program anywhere you want.  Do
not put it on a partition that has an OS.

Create a run object/shortcut where the run command is in the form
"X:\SMVersionXX\seamonkey.exe -Profilemanager".  When activated, the
profilemanager window will open.

Chose create new profile.  Take SM to the sub-directory you created and
have it use that sub-directory as the new profile.

If the sub-directory is empty. SM will create a complete new profile.
If you have copied an existing profile to the new sub-directory, SM will
use what that SM version is able to use and create or update the rest.

The r: partition is FAT32 and don't have any OS on it, so the first step
would be to create the top dir r:\mozilla.org

It lives on tte y: partition and that is only a data partition with no
OS on it. Later, when the contents on this ole box are transferred to
the new box (the partitions on the old and new box willh have the same
driveletters except those that will contain an OS, for example eCs 2.1
Personal and ArcaOS 5.0.3 and if can rescue the WSEB on the c: partition
on the old box it will go to a correspondding C: on the new box. She
plans to use File and Print Services to slurp over the old box data
partitions to the new box, She thinks this would be easier than using
ArcaMapper that requires that one use Netdrive with the Samba plugin
plus the Samba program itself.

SM will be where it's now, but the new fresh profile will go to the r:
partition.

So first She will open up the Profile file in the current SM, than open
up another Profile file in the Profile Manager and setting the new
profile as it should be but with a name of Brekke. She launches SM via a
.CMD file which contains the path to SM and LIBPATHSTRICT-T and the last
statement would be "seamonkey.exe -P Brekke -mail"

One can migrate the mail, personal adress book and Settings, but the
last step She can't do because the current Settings is ill, that'w why
SM gives Her so much trouble. The only thing that have to be done
manuallly is copying Bookmarks, History and the three 78476582 files
(She thinks that is three files with the extennsions .s, .w and another
file too, but She can't find it in the prefs.js file. Should there be
another such file too?

Assuming that the r:\mozilla.org dir is created, so the first thing to
do is starting SM in the normal way and open the Preferences notebook.
Then open a windowed OS2 session and launching the Profile Manager from
there, in this way the old Preferences and new Preferences will share
the same screen, then systematically go through the setings in the old
profile and and set them in the new profile, then closing down the old
and new Settings notebooks. Next would be to open tha Mail & Newsgroups
notebook in the old and new profile and setting up the relevant info,
then closing down both notebooks. Now comes the 64k$ question: Must the
system be rebooted for the new profile to take effect or can SM be
started with the new Brekke profile directly?
