Thank you -- that did the trick!

What about plain old shell scripts that use a bunch of regular Unix
commands (cp, mv, grep, cut, sed, etc.) -- can these be run from a DOS
box or from a bat file? Again the reason I want to be able to do this
is so I can use Windows Explorer and the Send To pop-up menu to send a 
file a Unix script.

Thanks again,
