Probably becuase of the original question mentioning Windows ME is why I
said this. Look around and I'm sure you'll find it. It can't hurt to
understand a little bit about windows, otherwise why use it?

I'd like to know what peoples exact facination with putting cygwin1.dll in
their Windows system directory is anyway. This should only ever be needed
when programs are launched independantly of a shell like bash. Mostly things
like inetd "as a service" which you can't do on Win98 anyway.
