Where are the Address Book/Safari Bookmarks stored

I have a backup of my old Panther installation. I have done a clean install of Tiger.

However, I need to get back all my Bookmarks and Address Book contacts.

Whereabouts are they stored. I don't have a .Mac account so can't get them back that way.

Safari bookmarks: ~/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.plist

Address Book: ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/AddressBook.data

(Edit, just in case: ~ = your home folder)

I think those two files are all you need...

I have found the Bookmarks plist file, so that's sorted now. I am still looking for where the address book is stored.
