Another data point for those considering ways of running GnuRadio on their 
Windows box. I have managed to install andLinux (http://www.andlinux.org) on 
my XP box. This allowed me to compile and install GnuRadio 3.1.1 and the 
trunk version of grc. It appears that I now have a working GnuRadio 
installation!! :-) . Now to find the time to learn what makes it tick, 
hopefully it plays nice with HPSDR hardware.

Cheers, Geoff.
