It's HOMEDRIVE & HOMEPATH and neither's listed in my System Environment panel
but if I start a DOS window and run set, they're both defined.  I think it has
something to do with the MSDOS prompt.  I've seen it on several versions of
NT and I don't have anything in my autoexec.

So he was probably not a Nazi.  Did he believe in the
Satanic ritual abuse?
