Yeah.  I'm familiar with them, but every WinXP
user profile I have tested has been the regf format.
My regfio code could successfully dump the contents.
There were a couple of things that were strange about
offsets.  Maybe the profiles.c code is tripping up
on that.  I'll have to test more to know.
