I'm not using X on my Cygwin so doesn't that mean this option isn't an
option? Anyway, I just used PuTTY, which is only a couple of K and works
fine. This means I won't need to load Cygwin on Windows machines in offices
when I install their SAMBA server. A simple floppy with PuTTY with SSH into
the server will do fine.
