    I'm pretty sure it's C>Documents and Settings>Application Data>iTunes>Firmware Files.

    If that's not the correct path go into your start menu, click run, and type %APPDATA% and find the iTunes folder.

    iPod firmware is generally stored in the folder C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates. Substitute your Windows login name for USER_NAME.

    For Vista it would be C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates, but thats ok too

    The first method would be best for windows xp.

    You can also search for the filename, but be sure to include hidden folders in your search.

    actually no, for vista, it is C:\Users\Username\AppData\ROAMING\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

    the roaming folder is very key...

    EDIT:

    jrr811, there are a few possibilities for a mac, some depending on the OS you have right now...

    a few options to try could be
    ~/Library/iTunes or
    ~/Library/Application Support/iTunes or
    ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup or
    ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone software updates <-- that one's probably the right one
