How to read my old Outlook Express 5.5 E-mail's in 6.0

Hi,

I'm running XP, and I have 2 Harddives, one has Win 98
(It's really messed up), and the new one has XP.  Now my
question is how to read my old 5.5 E-mails in 6.0.  Where
are the E-mail's stored?

I can't open 5.5, so can I get at my old e-mails?

OE 5, 5.5 and 6 use the same file formats.   So OE 6 can import the OE5 files.
