ah, actually I could do that in theory as I have access to
from work; I suppose it involves installing cygwin, downloading sources
and making up a set of files to burn from that.  I installed cygwin on a
pc this morning so maybe all I'd need to do is to copy the /cygwin
directory and run setup, but it is clear I need to read the manual now.

Given that I am not yet sure what I'm doing I must say that is
interesting.  Thanks for the offer!  I'll ask again if I can't work out
how to do it myself from the documentation.
