I run Mathematica for Students on on Windows XP Professional, 
and haven't had any problems until recently when I began to change my 
init.m file.

Now on first loading the kernel, the message window displays errors such as

---Error message below:---

Syntax::sntxq: The string starting at "Begin[\"System`Private`\"]"
      has no closing quote. (line 18 of "C:\Program 

---End error message---

For reference, below is my init.m file.  I do not see any extraneous or 
missing quotation marks, so I cannot figure out what the problem is.

---Begin init.m file---

(** User Mathematica initialization file **)

(** Decide how to display graphics on this machine **)

(* Hide any symbols which are created *)

         $Linked || $ParentLink =!= Null,               <<\"PSDirect.m\",
         Environment[\"DISPLAY\"]        =!= $Failed,     <<\"Motif.m\",
         True,                                          <<\"Terminal.m\"


---End init.m file---

Does anyone see anything wrong with my init.m file?
