You'll find several threads in the IEM pd-list archives regarding windoze
.dll compilation. Yes, you need a compiler and the VC++ environment is
most widely used, though if you check out mingw with nmake you can try
your luck there. Several people have offered their makefiles and settings,
again the list archives should help there.
Regarding your NTFS problem, sounds to me like you might benefit from
joining a LUG and getting help from them. I belong to:
People are really good at helping through the scary parts of screwing
around with linux as a newcomer.
The are several ways of getting NTFS (and other win distros) to behave and
recoil partition wise, but that is not a PD topic. As a note, dual booting
has come far and doesn't mean you need to trash you have to trash your
windoze partition if you need it.
One GOOD free software effort for partitioning:
