How do I get Thunderbird to use the same mail folders

    I have Two operating systems on the same computer. Win98 and Win2000.
    I have always used 98 for the internet connection but I now have the
    dialup set for both. I have Thunderbird setup in Win98. I clicked on
    the same installation of it from Win2000 and it wants me to setup new
    email connections. I want BOTH to use the same email folders. If I
    have to duplicate I'll be completely confused which installation is
    using which email folder. What's the trick to getting both to work on
    either OS?

    Yes, I know I'm using old OSs, I dont need a speech about upgrading.
    I have no intention of using XP or ANY newer MS bloatware.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the help. I knew there had to be a way to do it.
