they dont get created on my computer, mandrake 8.2 and
win2k dual boot, wineinstall finds my windows
partition and says default wine registries will not be
installed...  then when i run wine, it creates them,
but only the keys that are in the source of wine...

only time the wine default registries are installed
are in the event that wineinstall cant find a windows
partition (and therefore cant find windows registries)

see above...

either way though, they are there now, no matter
what...  only reason that the keys need to be changed
is if the user decides he wants his emulated windows
directory to be something besides C:\Windows...  in
which case he would need to edit user.reg in
