RKC is on a distinguished road

My drive failed and I have started fresh with a new hard drive. Can someone help me with transferring over info from a Time Machine backup?

How do I restore my iCal? Where are the files to import the events?

Address Book?

Bookmarks (Firefox)?

As for iTunes and iPhoto, is there a simple way to do this or do I just need to manually copy the files? Where are they?

Anything I'm missing? For the record, I can't export from the apps since the new drive is already installed. Also can't do a full restore from the backup at the start because I don't want to copy over the corruption (new drive is installed already anyway).

Please help me get my computer as close to where is was. Detail about where to find files and how to copy/import is much appreciated.

QUOTE Thanks
