Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.customize (More info?)
I appreciate all help I receive, but I don't think it works:
What have happened is that for the configuration described, each new
program added to Part1, has the same entry copied to Part2, and the same
occurs when writing to Part2, despite both partitions where placed in a
different region, having in common just Part3, with "C:\Documents and
Settings\..." stored in C: (in Partx), which in instance is HIDED by the
boot manager (I have two C: drives, Part1 & Part2, one at a time).
In other means: when 1 is active, 2 is hidden. When 2 is active, 1 is
hidden! In no circumstances they should see each other: fun and work should
never meet one another! But they do!
That's the face of my trouble!
