Re-installing Cygwin

I installed Cygwin according to the instructions at
The installation went fairly smoothly.  I then launched the shell and FTPed
the octave-2.1.57.tar.gz.

Upon trying to unpack the source, I was getting file does not exist errors
whether I was in the directory,
using full paths, or anything else I tried.  So I removed cygwin according
the the instructions, deleting
all directories, clearing all registry keys, and removing icons and startup
menu entries.

Now when trying to re-setup, all I am seeing for packages are:  All,
Graphics, and Math.  I am not seeing
the other packages I need such as Archive, Devel, Text, Utils etc.

My question is:  Why do I not see all the packages that I saw in the
original Setup?

Thank you,
Mike Rochon
