Re: dpkg available

See, I told you I would forget something important....    Ignore the 
dpkg-source.  Just copy off the dpkg.exe and dpkg-deb.exe....

As far as root, there are several options, depending upon your machine
architecture.  On my winxp and/or Win2K machines, I actually manipulated
my administrator accounts in /etc/passwd & /etc/group to make them respond as
root, and then I telnet back to my box, and login as root.  On my Win98/ME
box, I mangled my default account in /etc/passwd and /etc/group so that my 
normal account was always identified as root.  You have to create a /home/root
account, but I chose to soft-link /home/root to it's "parent" account (administrator,
default account).

I wish I could help more, but I understand it enough to get my machine to accept/work
with it, but probably not enough to write a definitive guide.
