You don't need to repartition your drive. BeOS PE installs to a 500mb virtual 
partition on your windows drive. You can then boot either from a boot disk or 
by using the included launcher (which will only work with Win95/98, not 
NT/2000.) It performs perfectly well in this situation. You'll not notice a 
performance hit at all. The only real issue is hardware support.

Cool ;-) I'm not really a compiler person. I'm interested in the creation of 
the GUI bindings however.

Fair play ;-)

Please don't think I don't appreciate all the work you guys do. Sometime it 
does feel like you've taken too much work on, however. It's a real shame more 
people don't take the time to try to help out with the compiler/rtl more.
