Don't link to Windows ATM fonts

The tip about sharing a single collection of fonts between Windows and BeOS is great, unless you’re using Adobe Type Manager 4 Deluxe in Windows. This software creates shortcuts in the C:windowsfonts directory which BeOS (R3.2) can not not deal with — the system hangs after boot. If you get burned by this, see the tip Disaster Recovery.

Both of the tips this tip is linked to are unavailable at this moment, but I guess the first one talks about creating symlinks from the Windows\Fonts folder to the /boot/home/config/fonts/ttfonts folder. (This seems quite weird to me, since FAT filesystem is mounted rather late in startup process, when most of the system is already running – including the fonts renderer).
