Question Moving bookmarks from XP to Ubuntu

This is probably one of the dumber questions I've posted on ANY Linux forum, but I'm in a fog and can't answer it myself. My attempts at searching the forums go no where.

I have Win XP and Ubuntu dual booting (via WUBI install). I want to use the Ubuntu side more but I've socked away a LOT of Linux-related bookmarks in Firefox that I want available when using Linux + Firefox.

Can I just cp the files from the /host directory to the Linux directory and, if so, where in tarnation does Firefox store them? If I could simply find them, I'd just try this on my own to see if it worked.
