 Sorry for beeing vague, but I have a recollection of seeing a posting by
Igor, or maybe Corinna, about creating the cygwin root folder with some
specific permissions PRIOR to running setup.exe a while back...
 Why don't you try to google on
	" +setup +perm +before +install +Igor"
or some such, it might turn up that particular posting... I wonder if it
wasn't Igor who wrote about it.
