No, I'm on FreeBSD5.2.1, no NTFS-writable driver for it, but I did export
the alive XP SP2 installation to UFS2/FFS. Cold it be that the problem is
system case-sensitively (%SystemRoot%/system32/config/* are all low-case)?
Permissions are OK, I've even tried it for root.

I'll try some simple debugging next week to find the truth...

Dealing with mmap() issue (or making FBSD developers deal with their kernel)
is higher priority :) My wine is Gerald Pfeifer's May version port
