If you register the extension, you will have the drive letters as well as the 
unix filesystem, which is somewhat redundant. Thus I thought we might better 
not register it by default and give the user the choice. 

In my opinion, the best way would be to have an option under [shell32] which 
can be set to show the dos drives, the unix filesystem or both. This could be 
set globally or in AppDefaults (and since it would be under HKCU per user). 
This would mean some unixfs specific code in the MyComputer shell folder, but 
I guess there's no way around this, if we want to be able to hide the drive
