re: linux.  I'd love to install on Linux but I don't have a linux machine or
even a dedicated windows server.  What I have is a computer lab with 3 vista
computers, 4 old clunky XP, and the occasional laptop that floats in or
out.   Any way to make koha feasible on a windows vista box, or do I abandon
koha and look elsewhere?  I'm not wedded to the idea of koha, I'm just
looking for the best open-source web-access bibliographic (no circulation,
just plain access to and capacity to easily add bibliographic records)
engine.  Tips?
