i don't dare to say, but for my first try with cygnus on Win i used an
old computer with Win 95 installed. I exported my local copy of the CVS
tree with samba from a linux machine and mounted it within the cygnus
shell. The multi-OS build of GRASS from a single directory tree works
Now that i know that it generally works i use NT 4.0 SP5 on a computer
with 128 MB RAM. I think that Win 9x is generally not stable enough for
serious work. And i see no chance to get the X11 thing working on Win
