You may want to try the new Zhuyin IME which is based on bopomofo on the
one hand, but can be set to support pinyin as well. [Right click on the
on-screen floating windoid, choose Properties, click the Keyboard tab, then
choose Roman input.]

This also works with the new Zhuyin IME shipped with Windows 2000.

Of course, your mileage may vary and you should get the latest global IME.
