What are the differences between "ntdll.dll" and "ntoskrnl.exe"?
In Windows XP they exist both and they export similiar (although different) set
of functions. Wine implements just "ntdll.dll".

Some W32 binary wants to import functions from "ntoskrnl.exe" from me,
should I make an alias of Wine "ntdll.dll" to "ntoskrnl.exe" and try to fill
the missing funcs? I have never seen W32 programming before as I am *IX coder.
