From what I've been told about this project, it isn't for the "not well
versed in Unix" it's for the people that are even illiterate on their
Windoze boxen.

If you want to use the registry, that's fine.  I'm familliar with the
registry and think it's going to be more trouble than it's worth.  I
only made the comment to make you think about the possibility in case
you had any reservations to begin with.

I'll even help you with it, if you like.  But given that Windoze doesn't
clean up after it's self when it makes changes, it isn't going to go
smooth as silk.  You are going to need a lot of test processes.
