	The NT 4.0 system I am using is an ix86 based system.  I guess I was 
asking if there were any written walk-throughs that can facilitate my 
making the latest (November 1997) version of the Platform SDK useable by 
Mingw32.  Would the RSXNT package be useable on a non-RSX machine?

	I realize that there may be a need to re-build all of the 
Platform SDK libraries for Mingw32 (which may in fact be the best 
solution)...I simply have no idea where to begin on such an endeavor.

	Thanks again everyone for your support and feedback.
