Default Linked Tables to non *.TXT files

I hope someone here can help me. I have a database that operated quite happily under Access 97, linking to a bunch of text files with extensions like .prn, .qry, null extension etc. Now, in XP, the Link table manager won't let me relink to them. I remember seeing a tip somewhere about adding these extensions to the registry to persuade access to play nice again. Sadly I can't find that reference anywhere now. My googling skills must need freshening, but right now I'm stumped.
Does anyone remember that hint, or has another way of linking to the files. Renaming them is not an option, for various boring operational reasons.

Chris
