installing octave on pc

Dear LS,

I tried to install octave under emacs on a pc
The emacs support for preparing *.m files works well,
 but the system cannot find octave after M-x run-octave
A path to C:/bin/sh.exe causes an emacs-freeze
I tried
  emacs 20.4.1, i386-*-windows95.1212
  Cygnus B19
Octave does run in a ms-dos window95 under bash
  but I want to run it under emacs
We have no problems with running Octave under Unix on our Sun-system

Another question:
Do I understand correctly that Octave does not support multi-dimensional 
arrays?I am used to work with APL, so that this hurts a lot.

Many thanks your efforts
