Not really helpful, not even with a smiley...

To Eric: you can try using the objcopy utility (it's part of Binutils) to 
convert COFF files into a.out format.  The DJGPP port of Binutils knows 
about a.out format, among others.

Note that some information may be lost when you convert to a.out, because 
it doesn't support all the info that COFF includes.
