Where are cookies actually stored on the hard disk?

This depends on the user's browser and OS.
In the case of Netscape with Windows, all the cookies are stored in a single file called

cookies.txt
c:\Program Files\Netscape\Users\username\cookies.txt

In the case of IE, each cookie is stored in a separate file namely username@website.txt.
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Cookies\username@Website.txt
