This worked for me.
1) Download load all .tar.gz files.
2) download bootstrap.zip
3) Download setup
While you are downloading all that, please put them in what I call a holding
directory. A holding directory is c:\tempdir or e:\tempdir
4) unzip bootstrap in tempdir. This will create c:\tempdir\bin and
Now, tricky part. copy or create a batch fiile with the following:
save to work.bat
if tar responds, then you did it; You created a bat file that will let you
read the c:\tempdir\bin
If it goes though and does not create any directories at the root directory,
Do you have all *.tar.gz?
If all you have is *.tar, then type gzip *.tar
Remember, you are doing all this from holding directory, tempdir (or
whatever you named it)
If you now have a set of *.tar.gz. try again with setup
Now, go to the root directory, and find cygwin.bat under c:\foo\bin
bash should show up.
Now, important tip,
type gcc -v
You should get a message about the name of the compiler and when it was
made, GCC 2.95.2 (19991024 stable release) or somethiing like
CONGRATUTALTIONS: V.1.1.0 is now installed on you machine. Go recompile
something with the new compiler.
