There is an easy way to copy registry info - as long as you can find where
in the registry the info you are after is. In regedit, just select the
`folder' that you wish to copy between machines, and select the Export
option (it's in one of the menus, I haven't done it in a while). This will
create a .reg file, which you copy to the other machine and then just
double-click on it, and it merges it with the registry there.
