Summary: [Doc] Setting environmental Variables Gaimhome/Gaimlang

Initial Comment:

well, that should be obvious, but setting the
environmental variables under Windows XP was not clear
for me.

I read the changes Hermanator made on the Win32 page:
But didn't understood how to do it.

So, here is a little help for those in my case:

To set an environmental variable under XP, 2 methods:

First one:
control panel, system, advanced, environment variables

and for exemple, name should be 'gaimhome' and value
the path to your profile, something as
'D:\Profiles\Gaim' (your profile will be in a
subdirectory name .gaim)
By default, the profile is in 'C:\Documents and
Settings\YOUR_LOGIN_NAME\Application Data'.

Second one:
Create a txt file and put in:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


(of course, you'll have to change the path to suit your
settings. Notice the double \\ !)
Save the file as a .reg. You'll just have to click on
it to set the variable next time you reinstall your WinXP.

Same applies to the gaimlang variable.

Hope this will help someone.

This bug is fixed in the most recent version of Gaim.  If you are
not using the lastest version, please upgrade.  If you are using
the latest version, please indicate so and reopen this bug.
