Not tried it myself but I would presume that at least on Linux you could 
create a symbolic link in the Firefox settings directory (sorry can't 
remember what it is at the moment) to the bookmarks.html file on 
Windows, but then you may have to tweak the registry possibly to tell 
Firefox to find the profile in another location (I did have a quick look 
in the Registry on my machine but I can't an obvious setting).
