Cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com) is your friend; it provides a relatively
complete Unix hosted on Win32. It works best on the NT branch of the
family when the disks are NTFS, but will degrade gracefully under W9x
It's free software. As soon as I find myself on a Windows machine, it's
the first thing I install after the Internet tetralogy: AVG Anti-Virus,
Spybot, Adaware, and Sygate Personal Firewall.
Disclaimer: I have no connection with any of these companies.
