Dear All,

Sorry I missed most of the discussions here. I just would like to add
2 points (if not alread reported):

- We use the "" command from the cygwin black terminal to
start the X-server of Cygwin.

- You might look at the Guide written by T.A. Patko for running the
R.E.D.-III.3 tools under Windows/cygwin. The R.E.D.-III.3 program
requires the RESP program which belongs to the AmberTools...

Sorry if this does not help...

regards, Francois
