Richard, as you know, keys do not have a type. So either the above
documentation isn't asking you to create a key (because it specifies a
type), or it's missing the words describing the value to be created.
Now as you know that keys cannot containt "\" it seems logical that you
should create a _value_ of type REG_SZ and follow on from there.
Corinna - you're the inetd maintainer?
-create a key of type REG_SZ (String) named like the full DOS path
