Take a freshly installed XP machine and follow the installation 
instructions for RHIDE. It does not work as expected.

Starting RHIDE in one of two ways.

     rhide projectname

Environment variables are set as instructed.

 From the cmd prompt, SET gives the following useful variables.
     djgpp=c:\djgpp\djgpp.env
 
Path=C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;c:\djgpp\bin

While the offer is appreciated, I barely have the time.
I have a fair idea of how to solve my dilemma but that does absolutely 
nothing for lesser knowing people who want to use RHIDE.

As RHIDE is primarily developed for Windows machines, and as XP a large 
chunk of the Windows using world, should the Installation instructions at
http://www.rhide.com/doc/rhide_1.html#SEC3
reflect this, or at least mention whatever workaround is required for 
someone who knows little about their OS's guts to get started?

I think that it's only fair, don't you?
