Aren't all drives listed into the same registry? I mean the registry instructs the programming where to find all the parts to the programming and it doesn't matter if you have ten drives they all have their information listed into "THEE" registry, don't they?

sudhir, so long as one's master and the other's slave, they'll get along fine, but the active registry is that of the master. In order to edit the slave, it will have to become master. Otherwise, it won't get read. Too confusing.

You can't access one Registry from another OS.

Run regedit. go to the file menu. See if you have "Connect Network Registry"

You can edit other registry for other user for current Win XP (easy, but you need to have admonistrator level or to know the password to user).
Use remote registry install.

To edit registry as a file - I have search for such application for a couple of monthes ago - no ideas :-(
