I dual boot NT/95
I make everything nice & and simple by sharing desktops,
   sendtos, temp folders
well I tryed out win98 a while ago...I noticed that there
   was a new string in the registry called "WallpaperDir"
you can specify the folder in which windows is gonna look
   for wallpaper
it would be nice to share a wallpaper folder for NT/95...
   but that string doesn't werk outside of 98
is their another way within NT and 95 to directly specify
   a wallpaper directory?

Thanks

No you can't specify wallpaper directory, it will be systemroot.
what you can try to do is set your win'98 wallpaper directory to NT systemroot
