Making Apache Run on Windows

As NCC’s alpha geek, I never turn down a challenge and I’ve got an interesting one this week. I have to take a collection of perl scripts designed to run on a Linux/Apache system and get them running on a Dell Laptop running Windows NT. The preferred method of simply defenestrating the Laptop and installing Linux isn’t acceptable because it will be used in demostrations requiring the use of a Netscape Navigator client that looks like the Windows version. In particular the drop-down boxes as rendered by Motif seem to confuse people who’ve never used a computer with a real OS. So the only choice appears to be running the whole system on NT.
