I have looked at http://www.weihenstephan.de/~syring/win32/UnxUtils.html
and I have looked at FTP directory
/bussys/winnt/winnt-public/reskit/nt35/i386/ at ftp.microsoft.com

the unx utils does not seem to work and the install at the ftp site
dose not
handle the loading of the uudecode executiable.

I am still looking.......
