 Have an old dell GX-240 with windows xp pro 32 bit on it. Have some ASIC hardware : Block erupter Cube, Avalon Mini and an Antminer S1.
I have no clue how to do an actual set up. To mine, No I do not want to CPU or GPU mine, just want the dell as a host if possible?
 I believe cgminer will work, so I am trying a cgminer/windows build with mingw32 that I found here https://github.com/someone42/cgminer/blob/master/windows-build.txt .

 Install mingw32                                                                  
**************************************************************************************
Go to this url ==> http://www.mingw.org/wiki/Getting_Started
Click the link that says "Download and run the latest mingw-get-inst version."
Download and run the latest file. Install MinGW in the default directory.
(I downloaded the one labeled "mingw-get-inst-20120426" - note that this could
be a different version later.)
Make sure to check the option for "Download latest repository catalogs".
I just selected all the check boxes (excluding "Fortran Compiler") so that everything
was installed.

**************************************************************************************
* Run the MSYS shell for the first time to create your user directory                *
**************************************************************************************
(Start Icon/keyboard key ==> All Programs ==> MinGW ==> MinGW Shell).
This will create your user directory for you.

I was able to follow these instructions up to here and I can not seem to find the MinGW Shell any where? Undecided

I think I found it. Just reread the instructions again.

Just download the compiled Windoze binary of CGMiner.

Get it from here

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.

Its the one called cgminer-4.4.2-windows.7z

You find it after you click on the link under the heading of "All files available from here:"

Don't forget to download the Zadig utility for WinXP too.
