Alright, that sounds like good advice.  I think I'll leave it alone the way 
it is and just strip it.  It appears to be completely stable.  I didn't get 
any errors building it with egcs, and so far I have not had any errors 
compiling any other problems.  Thanks a lot for the info.

A: No, but Windows would still suck if it was.
The side of the box said "Requires Windows 95 or better".  I figured
this means it must run in Linux.
