No problem - and you're right.  That method will let you directly
execute the assembly from the command-line.

Ok, so that means that the binfmt_misc stuff has already been setup,
and PE files registered with it.

Well, like I said, if you can directly execute your assembly from the
command-line, then you're already halfway there.  Are you using Gnome?
