You said:
"I guess Ant doesn't work in Windows Millenium, because when I pull up a command 
prompt and try to run ant, it scrolls by a bunch of crap which is basically 
standard error output. "

My assumption is that this results from the problem in ant.bat. If you make that
fix, Ant should work. You should then be able to use -logfile. If this does not
work for you, I apologize for the incorrect assumption

As for Ant producing too much output for Windows ME, I'm afraid that is a
limitation of Windows ME. There are many other limitations to Windows ME and it
is not feasible for Ant to try and fix all of them.

Some alternatives would be to install cygwin and use the rxvt terminal which
comes with a scrollbar or to use an editor such as jEdit (free) or UltraEdit
which can store the output into a window with a scroll bar.
