I suspect that output redirection at the end is your culprit.  If memory
serves, COMMAND.COM (Windows98's default shell) doesn't support named
pipes.  You may want to try upgrading your shell.  There have been
several threads on this mailing list in the past, with the most commonly
recommended shell replacements being 4DOS (sorry, don't have a URL),
bash from Cygnus' CYGWIN (http://sourceware.cygnus.com) and sh.exe from
'Virtually UNIX' (http://www.itribe.net/virtunix).
