You will find the answer here:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/prodtechnol/winntas/tips/winntmag/inreg.asp

That is one URL with no spaces (remove any spaces that may enter the address when pasted to your browser).

The files are:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM -is- \winnt\system32\config\system

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SAM -is- \winnt\system32\config\sam

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SECURITY -is- \winnt\system32\config\security

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE -is- \winnt\system32\config\software

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \HARDWARE -is- Volatile hive

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM \Clone -is- Volatile hive

HKEY_USERS \UserProfile -is- Profile; usually under: \winnt\profiles\usere

HKEY_USERS.DEFAULT -is- \winnt\system32\config\default
