Actually, I've never installed org-mode with make.  Just unpack the
archive in some tempt directory and copy the .el files someplace where
you want to store emacs packages.  (I have a .emacs_packages
directory.)  If you keep xemacs, there is a second directory of xemacs
only files you'll need.  Then add something like the following to
you're .emacs.


   ;; set up my own package directory
   (setq load-path
         (append (list nil "~/.emacs_packages") ; ... or where ever you put it

   ;; setup Org mode
   (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org$" . org-mode))
   (define-key global-map "\C-cl" 'org-store-link)
   (define-key global-map "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)
   (add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'turn-on-font-lock)  ; org-mode buffers only
   (require 'org-install)

Hello everyone.  I have within the past month and a half begun using
org-mode for my GTD needs, learning Emacs at the same time.  First off, I
have to say that I love org-mode, and want to thank Carsten and everyone who
contributes to it--it really is an amazing program.  To that end, being new
to Emacs, I absolutely love Emacs as well, and have found myself continually
looking for new ways to incorporate it into my workflow.

Now for my problem.  I use a Mac at home, but I just recently switched jobs
and have a Windows computer at work, with no administrator access.  This
makes it difficult for me to install anything, as I have to track down the
(overworked) IT guy and get him to do it for me.  I already had him install
XEmacs for me, only to find out that it doesn't come with org-mode
preinstalled.  I tried installing it myself, but it seems that I need GNU
make in order to do so, which would be something else to install, and (I
assume) I couldn't use it anyway without administrator-level access.

My question is, is there a pre-compiled Windows binary for Emacs (of the
installation wizard flavor) that I could download and get the IT to install
for me with a minimum of hassle on his part?  I looked at Emacs W32, but as
far as I can tell it's Emacs 21, and doesn't have org-mode included.

Thanks a lot in advance for your help, everyone.
