It is not easy. I had hoped to use WINBGIM
but I can not link the library, not yet at least.
Seems I have to use the source code.

OK, I can try that, but there has to be some command to configure X11
and then I would not have to learn to use yet another program;-)

The Internet connection is ok, I need the internet to download various
bits of code until I have something that sets up my main window correctly.

I have vsftpd on some other installations so I will try to install that.
Right now I am on hold because I have to prepare for the RS05 meeting
next week but I will get back to the Windows problems after returning home.

OK. I will forget about this. I already have Windows and a FAT partition
on the same computer, but I can not use it for development because the
boot times are very long. FTP seems the optimum solution and I had forgotten
that vsftp is the package to try firsthand:-)

No, with small files, the floppies are much faster. Maybe when the exe
file grows above 100 kilobytes or so I will change for USB:-)
