Re: Using Cygwin with Windows 2000

Step 2 shouldn't be neccessary.  Windows 2000 IS Windows NT (version 5).  It
was renamed to Windows 2000 by the marketing weenies.  I've ported a number
of apps from unix to NT/2k, and have not had any problems with
incompatibilities between the two.  Now if you're talking about differences
in Windows 9x and NT/2k, that's a whole different ballgame.
    Oh, and cygwin works fine under Windows 2k.
