Thanks Eli,
I'm building up a system for editing and capturing video.  I'm
looking at athlon 64 bit processor.   Near as I can tell, I'll have
to leave my favorite linux OS behind to take advantage of the
software for this kind of work that is available for MicroSoft OS.

I was afraid I might have a problem getting a good working install of
emacs which I would be lost without.  So it will likely be Athlon64
FX and Win XP pro.

I'm not that conversant on windows OS.  I know people run emacs on it
and I've seen many posts from you relating to emacs on that os.

I guess it would just be the normal ntemacs type of install?
