Hi Bill

Be careful, you're scratching for some religious war here ...

What is your problem for this on windows?
I darkly rermember to have installed emacs and I was searching for the
configuration file to insert a line like this:
(load-file "/home/ulf/.emacs.d/cobol-mode.el")
but I couldn't figure out where.
And I recall that I ended up putting this line into site-lisp/something.
