I get it now, sorry.  Hmm...  How about an internal mapping of /boot for the
SystemDrive, /boot/windir for the windows path?  Since the System and System32
directories always fall as subdirectories of /boot/windir this wouldn't have to
be mapped.  So, for example, if you have your WINNT system on the C: drive then
/boot would be mapped to C:/ and /boot/windir would map to C:/WINNT.
