It doesn't matter to me anymore, as I already know how
to correct the problem. But you know the breed unix
guys call "windows users": I guess it would be nice
for others. Point is, I installed Xemacs for Auctex
(and installed that for preview-latex). Namely I was
new to all the suit. In case someone is like me, it
helps if one doesn't have to deal with such
annoyances. Besides, is there a version of ghostscript
with "gs.exe" (maybe cygwin?)? What's the point in
keeping the unix convention in this case?

No problem, it's not worth trouble, most probably.

Seriously, it's very useful dealing with complicated
math formulas. Sometimes I use LyX, but it has enough
little problems to put me off :). Auctex seems to be
what I was always looking for (of course with
preview-latex included ;-))
