if you have all of cygwin installed, and you are running the gump bash 
scripts (as opposed to the gump ant scripts or the gump batch scripts) 
and you have all the paths in your profile in unix/cygwin format, it 
/should/ work (worksforme).

An alternative is to install and put on the (windows) PATH the windows 
perl and python distributions from activestate, and run the batch files 
(which should work from a cygwin bash session or a windows command prompt).

Sam runs gump on his windows laptop, I run it on my desktop machine. I 
think Nicola and Nick run windoze too. In fact, I have trouble getting 
the python version of gump to run on linux :D

If you send us your gump profile and some more info on your machine 
configuration, we can work things out.

bright side: if you want ssh/remote X access to a linux machine, just 
holler. I connect to my linux machine from windoze through 
Cygwin/XFree86, and that works rather nicely. You could be doing the same ;)
