Well I think the slashes got turned around as my error had them in the
DOS format  but probably some other problem like the fact that there is
a pipe in the script.

java.io.IOException: CreateProcess: \marsden\bin\md5.ksh
D:\svn\opensource\10.1/tools/release/db-derby- error=193

For the hash differences I think I must have picked up the output from two different attempts.
It does match up, but the prepended '\' seems perhaps troublesome too.

$ c:/build/sdks/cygnustools/md5sum  'D:\svn\opensource\10.1/tools/release/db-
\70b4807b544384d16db0ff0a0a299dc0 *D:\\svn\\opensource\\10.1/tools/release/db-derby-
$ md5.ksh  'D:\svn\opensource\10.1/tools/release/db-derby-'

I also am not sure of the exact format of md5 -q that I am supposed to
be matching. So, since I am the Dummy in this Releases for Dummies 
excercise,  Andrew would you mind fixing up the doc to give an example
of how the packaging.properties can be modified to work on Windows?
