My system is pentium 100Mhz with Win95

I downloaded IE 4.01 to my D: drive. I ran install.
All seemed to go well until I had a system crash.
When I tried to reboot, none of the java files were found.
The error message indicated that they could not be found
on the C: drive.

Since my C: drive is small (540 Meg) It was my intention
to install IE 4.01 on my newer 1.xgig drive (D:)

Anyways... no java   whats up?

the problems is that the # of changes IE4 makes to the registry & windows in general leads to problems when IE4 isn't installed to the same drive as windows.  Honestly, if it's feasible, I'd switch the drive set around, make the 1 gig the primary, and the 540 the secondary, then reinstall the whole schbang...

Sure, I could do that...
but it should work with the current configuration!
How do I make it work with the current configuration?
The Java stuff did work on the initial installation,
then, after the crash, the java stuff went bye-bye.

Where can I find good info on how to handle the registry?

Instead of playing with the registry, why don't you try to reinstall the 4.01 upgrade. It will do all the fixes for you.
This is the smartest thing to do since you won't be able to find all the registry keys that are missing, wrong etc.
