I'm not sure what you mean by recognizing the simple ca for certs. If 
you're issuing your own certs with a globus simple ca, you're going to have 
to import the CA certificate into any machines that you're going to use 
with those certs, as well as importing the users' identity certs.

Like Jennifer said, this is a network issue; you shouldn't have to do 
anything on the win box to make it understand multicast (well, usually - if 
you have multiple network interfaces, or are using something like VMware 
that installs additional interfaces, there is some tweaking that you may 
have to do).

I'm not sure what you're referring to with respect to GPT2.0 on the win2k 
distribution; we aren't using GPT  there (GPT being the Globus Packing 
Technology stuff). On the linux side, I'm not sure if the later GPT 
versions are backward compatible with the older Globus we require.
