Just so there's no confusion on what's the official document to use
for installation of Cygwin's OpenSSH, this is it:


Information at other sites is not under the control of the Cygwin 
community and may (or may not) contain errors or other problems that
this list can't support.  While individuals are free to use information 
from whatever source they desire, problems encountered as a result aren't 
a major concern of this list.  So, in laymen's terms, you're on you own!  
Evers clearly recognized this and did some research and fiddling to find a 
solution that works for him and perhaps for others following a similar path.  
Still, this list recommends it's own resources to those looking for 
information on how to setup Cygwin's OpenSSH.  Certainly these are the 
sources of information that this list can and will discuss if there are 
issues with them.

Thanks for the input though Evers.  Glad to hear you were able to get
your OpenSSH installation running.
