Yes. You need to running an X server. I believe that (gnu) cygwin has a
free version of XFree86/Xorg server that comes with it. I think there
was an ancient one by mix or something like that. Does your university
have any under site license? When I worked at Duke, they had a site
license for the X-win32 product from starnet (www.starnet.com).
