    Remove Windows section from Install Guide.
    We don't provide support for Windows anymore. There shouldn't be
    instructions for installing and using it in the install guide.

-\section{Windows Version}
-\subsection{Binary distribution}
-The Windows binary distribution uses the Microsoft Installer.  Download and 
-execute \texttt{mpich-xxx.msi} to install the binary distribution.  The default 
-installation path is \texttt{C:$\backslash$Program Files$\backslash$MPICH}. 
-You must have administrator privileges to install
-\texttt{mpich-xxx.msi}.  The installer  
-installs a Windows service to launch MPICH applications and only administrators
-may install services.  This process manager is called smpd.exe.  Access to 
-the process manager is passphrase protected.  The installer asks for this 
-passphrase.  Do not use your user password.  The same passphrase must be 
-installed on all nodes that will participate in a single MPI job.
-Under the installation directory are three sub-directories: \texttt{include},
- \texttt{bin}, and \texttt{lib}.  The \texttt{include} and \texttt{lib} 
-directories contain the header files and libraries necessary to compile MPI 
-applications.  The \texttt{bin} directory contains the process manager, 
-\texttt{smpd.exe}, and the the MPI job launcher, \texttt{mpiexec.exe}.  The
-dlls that implement MPICH are copied to the Windows system32 directory.
-You can install MPICH in unattended mode by executing 
-    msiexec /q /I mpich-1.x.xxx.msi
-The smpd process manager for Windows runs as a service that can launch jobs 
-for multiple users.  It does not need to be started like the unix version 
-does.  The service is automatically started when it is installed and when 
-the machine reboots.  smpd for Windows has additional options:
-\item[\texttt{smpd -start}]\mbox{}\\
-Start the Windows \texttt{smpd} service.
-\item[\texttt{smpd -stop}]\mbox{}\\
-Stop the Windows \texttt{smpd} service.
-\item[\texttt{smpd -install}]\mbox{}\\
-Install the \texttt{smpd} service.
-\item[\texttt{smpd -remove}]\mbox{}\\
-Remove the \texttt{smpd} service.
-\item[\texttt{smpd -register\_spn}]\mbox{}\\
-Register the Service Principal Name with the domain controller.
-This command enables passwordless authentication using kerberos.  It must be 
-run on each node individualy by a domain administrator.
-\subsection{Source distribution}
-In order to build MPICH from the source distribution under Windows, 
-you must have MS Developer Studio .NET 2003 or later, perl and optionally 
-Intel Fortran 8 or later.
-Download \texttt{mpich-x.y.z.tar.gz} and unzip it.
-Bring up a Visual Studio Command prompt with the compiler environment 
-variables set.
-Run \texttt{winconfigure.wsf}. If you don't have a Fortran compiler add the 
-\texttt{--remove-fortran} option to \texttt{winconfigure} to remove all the Fortran 
-projects and dependencies.  Execute \texttt{winconfigure.wsf /?} to see all
-available options.

-    build the channel of your choice.  The options are \texttt{sock} and
-    \texttt{nemesis}.
-If you plan on launching more processes than you have processors 
-you should use the default \texttt{sock} channel.  The \texttt{nemesis} channel 
-uses a polling progress engine that can perform poorly when multiple processes 
-compete for individual processors.  
-MPICH can also be built under \texttt{cygwin} using the source
-distribution and the Unix commands described in previous sections.  This
-will not build the same libraries as described in this section.  It will 
-build a ``Unix'' distribution that runs under \texttt{cygwin}.
-It is best to use paths that do not contain embedded spaces when
-building MPICH under \texttt{cygwin}.  For example, consider using 
-   c:\programFiles\mpich%MPICH_VERSION%
-instead of 
-   c:\Program Files\mpich%MPICH_VERSION%
-It may also help to have \texttt{cygwin} installed into a path with no
-embedded blanks.
-\subsection{\texttt{Vista/Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 Users}}
-To install MPICH version \texttt{1.3} or later please follow the 
-instructions provided in \ref{sec:winbin}. Please follow the steps
-below to install older versions of MPICH on Windows flavors with User
-Account Control.
-    Right-click on the command prompt icon and choose ``Run as administrator''
-    You can install MPICH from the administrator command prompt by executing 
-    msiexec /I mpich-1.x.xxx.msi

-\section{MPICH under Windows}
-The default installation of MPICH is in
-\texttt{C:$\backslash$Program Files$\backslash$MPICH}. Under the installation
