But, if you setup the variables via autoexec.bat for w9x or via the environment
tab on NT's system applet you could then just execute bash.exe by clicking on
it or a shortcut to bash.exe on the desktop. Please note, there maybe other
ramifications for doing this as I use dos batch files to start bash and haven't
used this method. I can't think of anything that should go wrong though.
