1) the drive path definitions got moved into softlinks

Can you explain this a bit more? I added old style 'hard' definitions 
for my preferred Windows drives to the 20040914 config file, such as:

[Drive C]
"Path" = "drive_c"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "c:"
"Filesystem" = "win95"
"Codepage" = "0"

If this is not proper anymore then can you point me toward any 
instrcutions on how to do it correctly?

2) the registry format changed.

Bummer - what does that mean to a user like me? (I'm not a programmer. I 
use computers like I use hammers and screwdrivers.)

Thanks for your responses! THey are helpful!
