Maybe I'm not getting things but this seems to be a problem I can not
get my head around.
I have two w2k boxes on a home network. No domain controllers, just
a home network.
The box that has the install that works fine for me needs to have
cygwin moved over to another box while I reinstall windows to fix
some issues that are not cygwin related.
I can't just copy files over, the administrator account can't access
some files. It can take over ownership and then access them but I'm
assuming the various programs set permissions for a reason. I trust
you guys more than I trust me on this stuff.
How do I move this install? Is there a FAQ for it?
