In fact, Mozilla not keeping its stuff in the registry is a big part of why I use it on those rare occasions that I run Windows. I don't want my history, cache and who knows what else scattered higgedly piggedly across the filesystem. Whether or not that's relevant to CIPE is another question. I agree that having information on a floppy would be good. That makes it possible to walk up to a random Windows box, and turn it into a VPNed extension of your corporate network as long as you have the magic disk. Very nice and convenient.
