sigh... I'm assuming Windows 98.

NTEmacs is somewhat merged with the regular distribution -- there are
binaries (20.4 was the last available when I looked before xmas)

is "complete".  There is even some help with the distribution
(basically, making sure that there is Rterm.exe in the usual path).
