 Once you have multiple profiles, then program object would be:

program path: path\seamonkey.exe
parameter: -P nameofprofile

 You could have mutliple program objects, change the name of profile in parameters. Once you have several profiles you do
need to specify which profile to load.

SM sits on the y:\ partition and it will sit there on the new box also.

It's called with a .cmd file that looks like this:
<$qoute>
setlocal
set LIBPATHSTRICT=T
set BEGINLIBPATH=y:\mozilla.org\mozilla\SMPmW118;c:\os2\dll
rem set NSPR_LOG_MODULES=smtp:6
rem set NSPR_LOG_FILE=y:\mozilla.org\mozilla\SMPmW118\smtp6.log
set MOZILLA_HOME=Y:\mozilla.org\mozilla
set MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH=y:\mozilla.org\mozilla\plugins
set MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1
seamonkey.exe -P default -mailer
cdd y:\mozilla.org\mozilla\mozilla\Profiles\cribo.jacobsson\ffml759q.slt
attrib -a history.*
rem xcopy ffml759q.slt savedprofile /S /E /V /H /T /R /O
endlocal
</quote>

So the only change after creating the new profile, Brekke, would be to
change the above seamonkey.exe statement to "seamonkey.exe -P Brekke
-mailer"

As mentioned above, She uses a .cmd file to call SM, so showing you the
current profile would be a bit overkill The only change to the above
.cmd file would be to insert the statement SET
MOZILLA_HOME=R:\MOZILLA.ORG\MOZILLA first in the .cmd file for starting
SM with the Brekke profile. But the new prefs.js must be edited with
TEDIT to set the signon file <xxxxxxxx>..s and wallet file <xxxxxxxx>.w
manually.  Then copy the Bookmarks and History file to their proper
placement in the new profile on the r:\mozilla.org file/dir structure.

But how does She migrate the profiles for FF? And She assumes that the
various .SQL files must be copied to their places also - are She right
here or are She totally out in the blue here?
