    i would like to know this also, i know on the pc where the iphone backup file is kept
    "C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup"

    i know this because my netbook had a major virus on it and i couldnt be bothered to fix it. i keep a regular backup of everything on my pc so i just reinstalled xp again.
    and then added those backup files back to there folder!

    but whether its transferable to a mac im not so sure

    Yes, the backup should be located within the iTunes media folder, unless you changed the directory :cool:
