NT sores the registry data in a file called 'ntuser.dat'. This file is usually located in the users home directory (if applicable) or %WINNT%\Profiles\<user name> ...

Hkey_Current_Config
Same as System + System.alt

HKey_Current_User
Stores in the \profiles subfolter as

I know that we always remember NTuser.dat, this file is the most used when we have a problem :-)
