Subject: emacs in x windows on dos/windows -- help!

Hi Everybody,

I have the dos port of emacs 19.28. I also have the Hummingbird
eXceed4 X server running. Naturally, it leads me to wonder if it is
possible to make Emacs come up in an X Window and use all the features
of Emacs in X Windows(viz. frames etc.). Does anyone know how to do
this? Do I have to recompile Emacs? Do I need to get a different X
server? Is it possible to do this without installing linux?

The emacs that I have runs from the dos prompt and comes up with a
menu-bar, it also runs in a dos window under windows, but the menus
don't work then, for some reason.

Basically, I would like to have almost the same functionality as I
have when using Emacs with X under Unix. Is it too much to ask? :-)

Else I shall have to settle for Codewright or Brief (good grief).
I don't have anything against these editors, they seem to be quite
powerful, but just that I prefer Emacs (add to that the inertia of
learning a new command set).

Thanks in advance for your help.
