Well the relative path (starting from the "top level") for /etc/fstab
is etc/fstab, whereas the one for c:/autoexec.bat is c:/autoexec.bat
(not autoexec.bat nor :/autoexec.bat nor /autoexec.bat).

Omitting the drive make no sense on windows.  Omitting the "/"
separator (<host>/<path>) also makes no sense, because it would be
ambiguous ...

E.g. host = sti, c:/k
-->  ftp://sti/c:/k.txt
-->  ftp://stic:/k.txt --> huch?  host = stic, port = emtpy, path = k.txt?

BTW: RFC 1738 is superseded by RFC 2396 and the latter by RFC 3986
(STD 66).  (I didn't read them, though :-))

Bye, Reiner.
