Installation Errors

I appreciate your response. When I run setup.exe, I'm downloading to a specfic 
folder. I have installed Cygwin numerous times this way and never had any 
problems. The one thing I'm doing different is burning the packages (along 
with the setup.exe app) to a CD. So, in my mind, I need to ensure that the 
cygpopt-0.dll is being transfered 1) from the mirror site to the harddrive and 
then 2) from the hard drive to the CD - because I know its not being 
installed. What package contains the dll? I did run cygcheck -svr and compared 
it to a working cygwin install - nothing jumped out ( I can't post the file 
for other reasons). The "-p" option is not recogized by cygcheck. 

Thanks for your help!
