I went to my old drive... Hard Disk/Users/MyUserName/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.plist
When I clicked on "Bookmarks.plist" a textedit window showed up, but it was just black; no bookmarks lists, there was nothing there.

You can also go to the Safari file menu and export the bookmarks to the desktop. Copy to a thumb drive and transfer to the desktop of the new Mac. Go to Safari on this mac and import them. They can be arranged or grouped by opening the bookmarks tab on the toolbar and selecting imported bookmarks folder.

Thanks for your assistance, dalstott!! I use a G4 QuickSilver 2002; run Tiger & Leopard. I have 4 hard drives on this old Mac. Whenever I followed your instructions; the Safari bookmarks located are for the Master Hard Drive and not for the older hard drive bookmarks I want to export. In other words, I would like to access the bookmarks on a Slave HD, and export them.

It looks like you need to use the older drive as a startup volume. Have you tried to boot by selecting it in System Preferences/Startup Disk pane or selecting it after boot with the option/alt key held down?

I don't think you need an external drive as I think I may have confused things by referring to my external non boot drive. I did this as I do not have a second internal drive to attempt importing the Bookmarks from.
You state you have 4 drives on the G4. For clarity lets call the Master HDD Drive A, and the other Slave HDDs drive X,Y,and Z.
- Open Safari on Drive A and click on Import Bookmarks.
- Navigate to the user folder on Drive x or y or z (to the one that has the Safari bookmarks you want to retrieve).
- From the user folder go via Library/Safari/to Bookmarks.plist and select it to be imported. The bookmark folder from Drive X,Y,orZ should be in the Drive A folder as shown in the picture.
