Re: Can't set mark in emacs


I am running emacs from bash.  When you say "the Win32 console", do you mean
the windows console that bash is running in?

I installed rxvt and skimmed the info for it.  I didn't see any thing about
running it in a non-X environment.  Is there a command line switch for this,
or do I need a different package?

I'll work on setting up X later tonight.

Thanks for your help,
