Where is D6 package list?

Where does Delphi 6 store its list of installed design time packages?
I have essentially the same Delphi 6 install on two machines. One machines's registry took a crap. After that Delphi 6 lost all its settings, including design time packages and library paths. Not a problem, since I have a mirror image on another machine.
Looking for a quick fix, I hacked around in the registry and managed to find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Borland\Delphi\6.0. I transplanted it. That fixed the library paths and some other things. Delphi runs fine, but all the packages are still missing.
Note, the above registry branch does include a KnowPackages key.
The Delphi 6 folders on both machines are identical. I'm not sure where else to look.
