Yes, I am interested, although I am probably going to duplicate this effort
and at least one other. I have a number of PIIIs available where I work --
and a few PIIs :( -- as well as a Celeron at home, all running Windows 2000.
IIRC PIII Atlas == Celeron Atlas. If Celeron Atlas != PIII Atlas, I will be
building Celeron Atlas and then Windows R 1.4.0 at home, and PIII Atlas/R at

Because of the unavailability of sound card drivers on my Athlon / Linux
box, I was forced to dual-boot that machine Windows 2000 and Red Hat 7.2. I
am, even as we speak, building the latest development version of Atlas
(3.3.13) on the Linux side and will be testing it with R 1.4.0 once that is
done. Assuming all goes well, I can probably make the results available as
binary RPMs, although Atlas is BSD licensed and Atlas 3.3.13 is a developer
("unstable") release. Athlon Atlas builds best with gcc 2.95.3, I'm told, so
it will take me a while to test all of this.

Once I have all *that* magic debugged, I'm planning on building Athlon
Windows Atlas (3.3.13) and R 1.4.0, using whatever the recommended tools are
these days -- most likely using the same Windows tools to build Atlas that I
am using to build R. That's a lower-priority item; since the machine is
dual-booted, when I need R/Atlas I can reboot and run against data in a
shared partition.
