Have you given any thought to running KnoppMyth from a CD? You can boot
your laptop from the CD and run it as a frontend without any hard drive
installation. Don't get me wrong, I want to see mythfrontend compile
under Cygwin as well. I just though that this might be helpful towards
your ultimate goal. At the very least, it may suffice until you can get
mythfrontend to compile.
