I have multi-mente installed on a so called ROM disk that starts from a cartridge.

Problem is the following. Multi-mente stores certain things, like previous paths and other things in MM.PHS and MM.HIS. Looks like this hard-coded to be in the directory where MM.COM resides. Since the volume I am running it from is read-only this fails.

Is it possible to tell Multi-mente to start looking for these files elsewhere? Does someone have the original source-code? I could probably create an environment variable telling to look for these files on another (writable) volume.

PS. I tried already the %HOME%, %TEMP%, %TMP% environment variables to no result.
