The default location of Outlook 2003 mail is:

Documents and Settings | Local Settings| Application | Data | Microsoft |
Outlook| outlook.pst

Not useful though unless the old installation is booted first, and FASTWiz
is used to export the existing system settings.

Correct. However, he will likely need to select "Folder Options" under the
"Tools" menu of any folder, and "Show hidden files and folders" under the
"Views" tab, to actually see the hidden folders containing that
"outlook.pst" file.

Likewise, he should reselect "Do not show hidden files and folders" when
he is finished - he would rarely need to access these hidden folders and we
certainly would not want him to accidently delete one.
