 the code needed for zipfile support in PhysicsFS, since most Windows boxes
 don't have zlib preinstalled.
 
+IMPORTANT: If you are using anything older than Visual Studio.NET, you
+will _NEED_ to upgrade to the latest Platform SDK from Microsoft. It is a
+free download: http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/platformsdk/sdkupdate/
+Be sure to install _at least_ the Core SDK and the WMI SDK. I'm not sure if
+this is needed (or usable for Cygwin). Even though you need these SDK updates,
+the compiled PhysicsFS DLL should work on any win32 platform from Win95 and
+WinNT 4.0 and later.
+
+No one's tried building this for a WinCE (PocketPC) platform, but it may or
+may not work. Patches are welcome.

 After that, if building with CygWin, follow the Unix instructions, above.

 If someone is willing to maintain prebuilt PhysicsFS DLLs, I'd like to hear
 from you; send an email to icculus@clutteredmind.org.
