Thanks a lot to Chun Tian (binghe) and you already!!!

However, it looks like this is going to be a lot more work:

- After loading ASDF and trying to load a system, I get the following error:

> Error: File #4P"home:" does not exist.
> While executing: TRUENAME

...which is triggered again by the following:

1 > (truename (user-homedir-pathname))
> Error: File #4P"home:" does not exist.
> While executing: TRUENAME

Translating the user-homedir-pathname in a different way yields the following:

2 > (translate-logical-pathname (user-homedir-pathname))
#P"Macintosh HD:Users:costanza:lisp:RMCL 5.2.1:"

This is probably because Mac OS 9 didn't know about home directories.

When I try truename before attempting to load any system, I get the following:

? (truename (user-homedir-pathname))
#P"Macintosh HD:Users:costanza:lisp:RMCL 5.2.1:"
