preserving resource forks under Windows

Does anyone know of a way to do this?
I have an installation program built in Rev. In one step of the
installation, I'm copying certain files to a server, including client setup
programs to be run at each network workstation (one for Windows, one for Mac
OS X, and one for Mac OS 9). The Windows and OS X client setup programs
work fine, but the OS 9 one does not if I run my server installation on a
Windows machine (obviously because the resource forks are not getting
preserved). So is there a way to do this from Rev? I notice that if I copy
a file directly from my Mac to my Windows machine using the Finder, the
resource fork is placed in a file named something like "._myfile", which
seems to work okay. Any ideas on how I can make this work using revCopyFile
