Yes, it works.
I have always done it this way. The complete cygwin distribution
without sources and only selecting [curr] downloads about 250MB
which fits without problems onto a CD.
You have to be careful, that you really download ALL packages
to a seperate directory, not only those that have a more recent
version than those you have already installed on your linux machine.
(as you would do it if you would do a cygwin update).
One thing that I observed upon burning is, that the downloaded folder
tree has more than 8 nested directories which does not comply to
some ISOwhatever standard, so nero complains when trying to burn.
I proceeded anyhow and it worked.
