| I am running emacs from bash. When you say "the Win32 console", do you mean
| the windows console that bash is running in?
| I installed rxvt and skimmed the info for it. I didn't see any thing about
| running it in a non-X environment. Is there a command line switch for this,
| or do I need a different package?
| I'll work on setting up X later tonight.
No need for X, just run that rxvt.exe by making a shortcut with these parameters:
rxvt.exe -sr -sl 10000 -e bash --login -i
Then start Emacs in it with parameter "No Window" i.e. "No X":
