As a result of this discusion I just did a install of xastir using the 
readme.win32 and it installed just fine, no errors, no questions to 
answer, no need to redownload the source and all that on a pentium III 
700 mhz with just 128mb ram and an unstable winxp pro.

Maybe the problem is you Dave or that of lintronix but it is definatly 
not xastir.
