    I recently downloaded the UnxUtils.zip file of precompiled binaries to my WinXP Pro system. I'd like to use a .profile file to setup my prompt and alias settings automatically when I start the shell. Does anyone have any experience making this work? Also, man.exe is looking for the man.config file in /usr/local/lib... obviously, on Windows, that path doesn't exist. Any ideas where I can get man.config, and make man.exe think that /usr/local/lib is an actual folder somewhere on my machine?

    Thanks for any help that anyone can provide.
