Playlist window -> Manage Playlist / List button -> Save playlist

Library window -> Playlists -> playlist -> Manage Playlist button -> Export playlist

Then save your playlists to m3u in a dir of your choice

FYI, the Media Library playlists are stored in
c:\program files\winamp\plugins\ml\*.m3u

[edit]Grr, I spent too much time typing this and don't want it to be in vain. lol [/edit]

Playlist files are saved with M3U and PLS extensions.

The default playlist (Winamp.m3u) is in the Winamp folder.
usually C:\Program Files\Winamp depending on where Winamp was installed

Media Library playlists (plf****.m3u where **** represents a set of numbers and letters) are in the media library folder usually C:\Program Files\Winamp\Plugins\ML.

From the Playlist editor you can use the 'List' button ('Manage Playlists' or 'List Options' depending on skin) to save playlists (M3U or PLS ) to another folder or disk.

Also, quote from Troubleshooters Sticky...

winamp.ini, studio.xnf, gen_ml.ini, reg entries, backups etc

[edit2]I forgot the ML export playlists option [/edit2]
