giveio.sys for NT, is useful only for some  ISA FM radio cards or similar...

BDM-GDB driver for NT, based on Linux driver.(source is open...)
I had tested gdb 4.18, gdb 5.0, Insight 5.0 (!)  under cygwin, and it 
has worked... with MC68360.
BDM cable  is Public Domain 5 chip design. We have problems with 
68360 at 32MHz, but we solve it, with simple hardware modification.
