Look into GNU tools for DOS/Win and then you can use the bash shell.

I use DJGPP which you can find at:

but you may want to look at Cygwin or mingw32 as
these are more intended for the WinNT environment.

Of course, another alternative is to install Linux and
then you'll have all the tools that you need right at
your fingertips.
