I am hoping for:

/mnt/flashdisk/lazarus/ = E:\lazarus

and then use the SAME source for both, and just have two binaries.  (lazarus
and lazarus.exe)

(not that having two would be so much bigger in size... but it will ensure
that the two works from exactly the same source)

I believe five out of four people have a problem with fractions.
