It would kinda nice to be able to use the 'C:\Documents
and Settings\<user id>' directories as the users' home
directory (like GIMP for example), instead of
maintaining multiple home directories.

Thanx for all the hard work!

    This can be done by modifying the /etc/fstab file.

    Note that you must use the 8.3 alias because of the spaces
    in 'Documents and Settings'.
