BUILDING FOR MICROSOFT WINDOWS
==============================

You can perform the build using either MinGW or Microsoft Visual Studio 2005.

	Microsoft Visual Studio 2005
	----------------------------
	
	Open the solution in msvc/mtx.sln.
	
	Select the Build / Build Solution menu item.
	
	
	MinGW with GCC
	--------------
	
	You must be using at least version 2.16.91 of binutils.
	
	To generate the initial configure script, this only needs to be 
	done once.
	
	./configure --host=mingw32
	make
	
CHANGES FROM UNIX
=================

The only difference is in the naming of devices.  On Linux the changer is 
accessed using /dev/sg<N>, on Windows you use Changer<N>.

On Linux the tape drive is referenced using /dev/nst<N>, on Windows you use Tape<N>.

There is one exception, in the case where there isn't a driver loaded for the device.  
This is usually only the case on Windows 2000 or if the Windows XP or Windows Server 
2003 system supplied driver has been disabled.

In the case where there is no driver loaded you can access the device directly 
through the SCSI driver using the following notation:

	<port>:<bus>:<target>:<lun>
	
		Port is the adapter number
		Bus is the SCSI bus number relative to the adapter
		Target is the SCSI device's target ID
		LUN is the SCSI device's logical unit number
