You should simply create the gsdl/bin/windows directory on your linux
system, which (I think) will work fine. Note though that the exported
collection itself will only run under windows.

You'd need to rebuild your collection first, to include only the
documents you want, then export that smaller collection to CD-ROM. That
is, once a collection is exported it no longer contains any source
documents, so it can't easily be altered or rebuilt. The easiest way to
remove certain documents from your collection is to remove them manually
from the import directory, then re-import and rebuild. If you really
don't want to have to re-import it you could try to remove the documents
you don't want from the archives directory (or simply remove the
appropriate entries from the archives/archive.inf file), then rebuild.

I hope this helps.
