Maya 5-to-Maya 6 Shader Library Q

How can I import a bunch of my old Maya 5 shaders to a Maya 6 program? Because of my using a school labratory for shaders, I am at a loss as to how I might import them in one swift installment. I've got a folder full of all my favorite shaders from 5.0 saved, but I can't figure out how Maya 6.0 stores them, because the Maya 6 I'm working on has a clean-slate (no shaders stored). Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I apologize for my newbie question >_<.

i didnt think it was either, even if it was it wouldnt have been more than a few hours ago

those who were beta testing for alias were meant to be hush hush bout maya 6 as well
