The list you provided above are categories, not packages. Each category is
comprised of many packages. Click on the category of interest and you will
see it expand into a list of packages in that category. You are free to
pick any (or all) package(s) from any category to install.
By default, Cygwin will install a subset of packages from a number of
categories. This is seen as a "reasonable" set of packages to provide
some useful functionality. If you don't know what you want or need from
Cygwin, I'd suggest not selecting (or, more importantly, de-selecting) any
packages. Just continue with the default packages selected. If, after
installing that, you find something you want is missing, you can visit
<http://cygwin.com/packages/> and either browse the packages there or
enter the name of a file/utility you want and see what package it's in.
You can then run 'setup.exe' again to install that package.
If you'd like more information about 'setup.exe' and how it works, please
see the instructions on using 'setup.exe' at:
