Basically, you open an MS-DOS Prompt and type the commands that are listed there. So, to generate a key, for example, you'd go to the GNUPG directory, in the DOS shell, like this:

They are also available in a .txt file for Windows. If anybody wants a copy, let me know.

This is correct. You'll still need to run the NAI Windows GUI alongside GnuPG, but you can access keyservers through that. To do so, you will have to maintain two sets of keyrings: one set in your GnuPG directory and the other in your NAI PGP directory. In fact the "Windows" version of GnuPG may be the basis for a future Windows version, but it is in reality a PC-Dos version at this time. I am not a Linux user, but use GnuPG for PC-Dos as well as PGP. If I can help anybody install and run it, I'd be only too pleased to do so, on or off list.
