    Install Firefox onto your Windows machine, then let it do the importing of IE's bookmarks. Then you'll be able to export from Firefox a single bookmark file that will be understood on your Mac by Firefox, Safari, and many others.

    It's a round-about-way to get this done, but is the simplest.

    You can try installing IE for Mac (http://www.download.com/Internet-Explorer/3000-2143_4-10209078.html). I'm not sure if it saves favorites in the same way, but is the only option I can think of. I don't remember the format for IE favorites to know how hard it would be to create a script to convert them.
