Try rxvt. There is a version that doesn't require an X-server (although it
does require cygwin) at http://www.io.com/~bub/rxvt.html. I have tested the
precompiled version with cygwin-b20.1 + Sergey's coolview dll. (Since the
precompiled version used cygwin b19, I used a hexeditor to replace
"cygwinb19.dll" with "cygwin1.dll**" in the rxvt.exe - where "*" is 0x00).
The command line "./rxvt -fn "Lucida Console-12" -e cmd" brought up a
console running cmd.exe under winnt. I assume "./rxvt -fn "Lucida
Console-12" -e command" will do what you want under Win95.
