Hello Rainer,

Aaaha! ;-)

Do you really think so?
Have a look at the diff from after your last change until my last change:

The only position where I "removed" something was due a cleanup in the
Symlink section - and I guess that's ok if you look at what I've changed.

Plus I changed some texts so that your comments fit a little better into the
text flow.

I didn't say that! Of course servers should not use FAT, but my reason was a
different one:
Obviously, the integrated junctions are only possible for directories, not
for files. Sysinternal says that this is the reason for providing their own
junction program.

If you think this is wrong, feel free to correct it and I promise I won't
touch it again! ;-)

As I wrote - I remember lots of users having problems with that, so a link
to some documentation would be great (...if you have any).

Look at the diff, I think you were simply not precise enough. Anyway, same
as above, I won't touch it.

I know that. Well, these comments were not made by me.

The rest wasn't added by me, so feel free to "correct" it if you want.
