I've gotten past that and compiled and ran my first Win32 project from 
inside Linux!

Thanks for the help...

Now to try and turn it into something useful.  There's a long way to go 
to get CBT to compile that way.

First, I noticed in Windows that a command window opened prior to my 
application window, and stayed until my app was closed.  Is this normal?

How can I make the GTK Windows interface work?  Every time I try to 
compile with GTK widgets for Windows I get "can't find interfaces."  I 
have GTK runtimes installed in Windows, and considering that the Win32 
interface is still not complete thought this would be best to do.

I can't seem to find a "shell" command for Windows interface.  I grep'd 
it in some of the Lazarus include files, but can't figure out what to 
"uses" to get this.

Things with resources don't compile for win32.  Can't find unit 
lresources.  I have already build+clean the codetools for win32.

Well, there's my shopping list of difficulties.
