I have a complete XP system on my 2nd hdd. How can I find the Outlook Express Addressbook there?

Search for .wab files. However you an't just open it, you'll need to import it into your existing address book.

What do you actually want to do with it when you've found it?

To import old address book -

Open OE - go to File - Import - then browse to where you found the .wab file (search for it as above, first) - then follow the import wizard through.
