l have a vector format of classified image of landsat tm. I am trying to calculate the distances, cell to nearest polygon edge in Arcmap 9.2.

actually, l want to measure the distances from agricultural cells to industry, urban, road etc polygons. road and hydro layers are different. 

l added a jpeg for illustration

after this process i want to give a value for every cell according to the distances to the parameters
l hope l am doing it in a right way :)

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks for your time,
