Mozilla 1.0.1 Win32 works almost flawlessly

That may be ok for renaming wininint.ini, but there is a whole bunch of 
other stuff that needs to be done. Off the top of my head, I can think 
of the following:
windows.ini run= sections

On NT, remove the RunServicesOne and RunServices and wininit.ini, but 
instead add
Delayed rename (easier for us to implement, actually)
Default registry
All users start menu

I must admit that I am not sure where Andreas' current code stands. I 
will note that, in many ways, the NT infrastructure is easier for us to 
implement than the 9x infrastructure.
