i think that you have not donwloaded the whole cygwin or
at least the minimum download for work.

the installation does not need manually un-zip and un-tar.
the setup program will do it for you.

i bet you have not downloaded the necessity. try to, at
first download all the packages by choosing 'download from
internet' in cygwin setup program. then run cygwin setup
again, choose install from local. after installation,
a shortcut will be on desktop. 2klik it will show you the
performance. check cygwin's home for details.
