gpg utils W9x vs. Linux

Hello all,

Currently I have a P-300, 128MB, 6GB, and running W98SE and Vector Linux 
3.2 in dual-boot.  Right now I am still in the process of getting the 
Linux side all properly configured and for the moment am doing almost 
everything on the W9x side of things.  I would like to change that.

I have (w9x) gpg, gpgshell, and am using Mozilla (1.7b) with the 
enigmail plug in to handle signing, encryption and so forth of email. 
This is the first time I've really used Mozilla and I have to say I am 
very favorably impressed.  Not least of all by the fact that it is 
'multi-platform' capable.  I just love that.  Any program I use 
frequently, unless I have no other choice, is going to run under more 
than just Windows.

1.  Is there another util other than gpgshell which will run on both W9x 
and Linux?  GPL would be best.

2.  If not, can someone recommend a good 'general gnupg' util, with 
similar functionality to gpgshell, for the Linux side of the box?

Lastly, I intend to install Mozilla on the Linux side of the box in 
fairly short order.  Does anyone know of a 'quick and mostly painless' 
way to 'import' the w9x settings, email, and so forth to the Linux side 
of the box?
