ACT 2006 on two separate computers...how do I copy my contacts from one computer to other?

I just added ACT 2006 to a second computer in my office.  They are not networked.  I would like to copy my contacts from the one computer and put on the other computer.

You can backup the database from one machine, move it to the other machine and restore it

When you restore the backup , select the option restore as

I copied my Database from my primary computer to a zip drive.  However, it doesn't appear the contacts actually copied to the zip drive?  Additionally, If I open ACT on the second computer, how do I import the first databasse to the second computer.  Thank you.
