    Copy the file ~/Library/Application Support/iWeb/Domain to the same folder on the other machine.

    In the user's library, in the Application Support folder, open the iWeb folder, and the file named "Domain" is the one you want.

    EDIT: nevermind

    Make sure you are looking at the Library folder inside your user folder, not the library folder directly from the root of your hard drive.

    A perfect way of doing it is to use Backup_3.1.2.dmg for leopard just select to do a custom save for iWeb save it to a folder of your choice then just re-run Backup on the other machine & select restore. Also note that if they already have an existing site then when you restore it make sure to only restore new files that way the previous sites are not lost. Now if they don't have any iWeb sites just do the normal restore and all will be put back in Place as it was on your machine.
