Sharing Mozilla setups -Mandrake Linux/Windows

I'm trying to figure out how to be able to access my Mozilla
bookmarks/settings equally from either Windows ME or Mandrake Linux 10.0.
There are two people using this computer.

So far I've succeeded in reading/writing bookmarks regardless where I am.
After creating two different Mozilla user-profiles when in Windows, I
rebooted into Linux and created the same two users, then pointing to the
same folder where I had put them in Windows ("My documents" folder) they
were immediately recognized and not created from scratch. Therefore they
point to the same users.

I still have some problems though:

1) I create a mail and news setup (i.e. entering the newsgroups I want to
subscribe to etc.), then when I reboot into the other operating system it's
all gone.

2) I get serious cosmetic problems (graphics all messed up etc.) when using
a themes different from the two default ones, even if I've downloaded the
same theme to both operating systems/users.

3) I've had a local web page as my startpage. This page is located in the
"My documents" folder in Windows, but naturally Linux won't recognize the
path "C:\windows\My documents\blahblahblah.html", and if I set it in Linux
then Windows won't recognize the path "/mnt/windows/windows/My
documents/blahblahblah.html", so how do I solve this?
I suppose the problem with email and news might have to do with the same

Anyone succeeded in sharing Mozilla between Linux and Windows?
