Vote "No" to HTML messages.  Now, as to your problem, what you need to do
is go to and poke around, looking for a file called
cdk.exe which allows Windows users to use a bash-like shell, and allows
access to some of the *NIX libraries.  It comes with a patch program,
patch.exe, and I have found it(somewhat) useful.  However, if you don't
feel like downloading a 12 MB file, go to George Greer's
page( and look for the CircleMUD section.
In there is a document entitled "The art of hand patching" which will
tell you everything you need to know about patching those *.patch files.
If this doesn't help, send me an e-mail and I'll try and help you out.
