    Heh, funny, I had nearly the exact same issue yesterday

    The company I work for has been developing it's own version of Linux... one that runs on Windows (called LOW, Linux On Windows). At it's heart, it's a slim and trim Debian install. Does not come with GCC (or many other things, 35 MB download) so I had to install it. I found the best, and easiest way, to install it was to use your version of Linux's package installer. RPM's for redhad, .deb for debian, etc... makes the install quite easy.

    To install GCC (3.3.2.) you kinda already need a compiler, because it comes only as binaries needing to use the configure - make install method (at least the version I found)

    Took me a good 3-4 hours to finally get the stupid thing working. Good luck

    hey travis, is it possible to connect via LOW to another network and display xwindows applications?

    In theory... yes. Because as of right now the only way to run XWindows through LOW is with the use of VNC...

    I personally haven't tried it yet though, my exposure to the program is somewhat limited. I've only been in testing for 2 weeks now, and working with LOW for a bit over a week.

    I'm looking for some software that could do that. I'm running XP on my loptop, and I need an easy access to XWin apps from my school. I downloaded Exceed 9.0 from Humingbird but it is a biziatch to use. Some applications ran through exceed work very slow on DSL/Calble, and are impossible to use on dialup...I wonder why....anyways, when is LOW to be released? will it be free?

    I though X was only really tolerable over a LAN. That's what I heard, at least.

    To the best of my knowledge LOW will always be free. There has been no talk of it being a paid for app, so hopefully that will remain the way it is even when it's finally released.

    It can be downloaded at www.penguindows.com in it's current Beta status. A couple words of warning however.

    #1 It will run REALLLLLY slow on a 9X machine unless you have a real beast of a computer, and it's still quite buggy. I test on a 550 MHz Athlon and quite frankly, it's nearly unbearable to work with. The install alone can take upwards of 30 minutes. If you run 2000/XP it's much much better. My 550 acts totally different with this version

    #2 The dowload will actually download a bare-bones version of the eAnthology manager. From here Penguindows (LOW) is downloaded, and should start pretty much automatically. It's 33 MB so it will take some time, even on DSL/Cable. There isn't any progress bar yet (well, 9x has one XP is buggy) so you'll just kinda have to wait Installation will start when it's done downloading.

    #3 Penguindows can be run without eAnthology manager. Quite frankly, I reccomend it. Unistalling eAnthology on my machine broke Penguindows temporarily, but it can be reinstalled by itself. There should be an MSI file in the penguindows install directory.

    If for whatever reason you can't seem to get the eAnthology manager off your computer (for some reason occasionally the unistall gets broken) then there is a forcefull unistaller here:
    http://www.buttonware.net/pub/download/qa/AllUninst.com

    You might want to try the forcefull unistaller first. It may not break Penguindows, but I'm not positive on that.

    I thought so as well, and so did my professor. But I desperatelly needed to use tkgate, which is only available on XWin...I looked around the net and found Exceed. TKGate works slower through exceed via cable, than at school via lan...but it is bearable.
