Default XP's "" skips first lines of output -- a bigger problem

Slightly OT, but you get unix/linux under XP if
you install Cygwin, if you'd prefer a nicer shell.

/cygdrive/c gets you to windows drive c

I've run it since 2005 without problems.

Use .profile as usual to set the shell up the way
you want.

On the internet, nobody knows you're a jerk.
