Accessing Newsgroup settings on another Networked computer

Hi,
I would like to access my settings for Thunderbird off my main PC, onto 
my laptop.

I only want to access the Newsgroup settings off my main PC, so that 
when I view a message on my laptop it will then be marked as read when I 
later open thunderbird on my main PC.

Both computers are networked and I can access files and folders on both 
PC's.

On my Laptop, I went into Tools>Account Settings>Newsgroups>Server 
Settings and tried to change the newsrc file from its default of:

C:\Documents and Settings\Rod\Application 
Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\kn2w15am.default\News\text-news.blueyonder.co.uk.rc

to where my main PC stores its newsgroup settings I think:

\\thor\C:\Documents and Settings\Rod\Application 
Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\kn2w15am.default\News\text-news.blueyonder.co.uk.rc

But thunderbird offers to OVERWRITE this file.

I don't want to do this, as I think it will copy my mail settings from 
my Laptop to my main PC.

Am I barking up the wrong tree, and is this possible?

TIA
--

transporting settings/emails from mozilla-mail to mozilla-mail
Hallo, I've got a really, really big problem. I'm working with mozilla-mail on an Linux OS for about 2 or 3 years. Two months ago my harddisk crashed. To keep on working , I set up a new Linux OS with the new mozilla-mail. Now the harddisk is repaired. I could reach my mails and setings (filter, accounts...) of the last 2 or 3 Years again, if I knew how to import these information from the old system into the new system. Help needed, because I'm without any e-mail-address of the last 2 or 3 years. Thanks Karsten ...

A way to reorder the mail/news accounts in Mozilla Mail ?
I have many email accounts, mostly due to using temporary email addresses. Each listserv/news server I belong to could have its own account, and I use some more than others, so I would love to be able to just drag those to the top of the list. For instance, I have had this address for my news.mozilla.org nntp account for better than a year but never felt the need to post anything; since you are all doing such a wonderful job! ;-) Many thanks!

I moved these exported files to my new computer's desktop. Finally I tried using the Thunderbird import applet to import these folders to Thunderbird. No luck so far. Any advice on how to get the emils from Outlook on one machine to Thunderbird on the other machine would be greatly appreciated. BTW: I did the export from Outlook without encryption, if that helos.
