Funny you should ask. I've been writing a file system driver for
linux to do that. Currently, it's read-only. Also, it only works on
NT registry files; 95 uses a completely different format. I haven't
published the code, yet. It seems to be stable. I'll try and cobble
together some kind of alpha release soon.
You may also want to ask Petter Nordahl-Hagen <pnordahl at eunet.no>.
He's the author of the the linux boot disk to change NT's
Administrator password. I got a lot of the registry format
information from him.
