@Dennis Williamson --- Would you put this material you've posted down below as an answer, please? I'd like to give it a boost and hand you some points, if that would be useful to you.

Are there really bombproof walk-throughs for all the setting-up? My last stint as ad hoc sysadmin was 15+ years ago, and I'm getting too old to figure this stuff out from scratch.

Can a virtual OS host a VM of its own? Recursive, collapsible networks?

comment Best way to have full Python install under cygwin/XP?
I don't understand. I do most of my work inside cygwin. I'm trying to find the best way to operate a full-blown Python distribution from there. I don't even know why I would want .Net libraries. I'm trying to write books, sling text around, and solve puzzles for mental exercise, and I like my cygwin environment --- considering the alternative.

Actually, I want to work with Python under cygwin. WinXP is just a fact of life in the background that holds the Python distribution, along with a lot of other things. Linux, as far as I've been able to judge it, is out, for me.
