Thanks for the information, I didn't even know you could do that! Sadly, though, I cannot use it: I don't have apache, and when I went to download that, I didn't have some other thing, and when I went to download that, my system didn't have the right dll's. Oh well, mabey if I ever get around to getting a unix system I can use it.

    Installing it is never easy. However, if UNIX is the major hurdle, you can always run it side-by-side on your current system in a multi-boot fashion, or even at the same time using a virtual machine program like VMWare which offers a 30 day trial download. That way you really don't have to do much at all, and if you have a spare 3GB drive, you can install onto it without repartitioning.

    Since Apache, Perl, and MySQL are all available for Windows, though, there is no real reason why Everything cannot be ported to the Windows environment. The only issue might be compiling some of the modules it uses, but a friend with a compiler would solve that problem.

    Just a thought.
