I have :
/////////
 IniFile:TIniFile;
 RepFileChoices : TStrings;
 sTemp:string;
begin
  IniFile:= TIniFile.Create  ('h:u\mbarron\adt_report\ADT_Report.ini');
  RepFileChoices:=TStrings.Create;
  IniFile.ReadSection('Reports',RepFileChoices);// errorline
  sTemp:= RepFileChoices[0];
\\\\\\\\\\\
INIFILE Follows
////////
[Reports]
Main=Yes
TotalTime=Yes
IwTime=No
Function=Yes
\\\\\
I get an error on execution of the next to last
line above. "EAbstractError"
Q1: Is the problem Wn2000?
q2: should I be using Registry? Understand
registry, but do not its usage in Delphi.

IniFile:= TIniFile.Create  ('h:u\mbarron\adt_report\ADT_Report.ini');

this line seems to be wrong, maybe you meant:

IniFile:= TIniFile.Create  ('h:\umbarron\adt_report\ADT_Report.ini');


good luck

The EAbstractError comes from the fact that the TIniFile.ReadSection() ends up calling TStrings.Add, which calls TStrings.GetCount, which is defined as abstract. (in classes.pas)

Use TStringList in place of the TStrings. TStringList has overriden the abstract methods in TStrings.
