RE: init.m of FrontEnd in M5.2

The init.m file in: C:\Documents and Settings\<yourname>\Application
Data\Mathematica\FrontEnd (or similar for other languages) is not for
you, it's for Wolfram's setup.

The init.m file at: C:\Program
Files\Wolfram\Research\Mathematica\5.2\Configuration\Kernel definitely
works on Windows XP - I am using it right now!! If you have other
versions then you can differentiate the init.m files by the directories
they appear in \5.1\, \5.2\ etc., I suppose....
