Hi Will,

I can't speak for the situation on the Mac past or present, but what you 
need to do on a PC is download ResourceHacker and make permanent changes 
to FM's dialog boxes by modifying fmdlg.dll in the fminit folder.

(You will, of course, remember to back up fmdlg.dll first, won't you...)

I'll stop saying Microsoft is arrogant when
Windows stops saying "Welcome" and instead asks "May I?"
