I can't stress enough that no visual studio should be required ... I think
nmap compiles with just the sdk provided by installing .net, and so you
don't even need the free express versions.

I will see if I can carve out some time to try to compile nmap with those
tools, but it's a bit tricky, and it would require someone to write an
msbuild file for it, since the sln is a solution file for visual studio, and
we really need a build.xml.
That would be a good idea - I had hours of hair pulling when I first was 
setting visual studio (expr. edn.) up!
Ok, the other thing is this. Please check out mingw ... I have never used
cygwin in the past four or five years, and I am perfectly happy. Mingw gives
me all of my little gnu tools like wc, find, gawk/awk, grep, and the rest,
all in any windows cmd prompt.

It also gives me an extremely stable and good version of gcc, make,
autoconf, and so on.

Take care,
Mingw you say, I like the sound of that and I'll have a go.  One step at 
a time though, I want to conquer this cygwin thing because it used to 
compile nmap with UMIT with no (well, not many) problems...  Thanks for 
the tip!  (and: every day's a school day)
