Not sure if they fit on a floppy, but there are two Windows front ends
for GnuPG. the first I'd look at is GnuPGShell from
and the second is WinPT from
However, if you want to set up your Windows machine with a GnuPG
compatible MUA, try Becky!2 from http://www.rimarts.co.jp Its
shareware, but there is a free GnuPG plug-in called BkGnuPG which can
be obtained from
As with GnuPG for Windows, there is no keyserver access, which the two
front ends overcome to a certain extent. A very PGP-like set up can
be obtained from using Becky!2 plus BkGnuPG, and also GnuPGShell.
