Cygwin def ault insta llation: c ommand not found‏

Cygwin is terrific software. I use it all the time. However, I found a 
strange installation problem that I want to share with you. I have a 
brand new image of WinXP on my system. This image is company provided. I
 got it only this morning and I installed some software since; 
notepad++, google earth, skype etc.
When downloading cygwin by its install program, it stalled. I tried 
again a few times. Eventually, Cygwin got installed. When I typed simple
 commands like ls or cp, the standard answer of the shell would be 
"command not found". I could solve it by creating a file named profile 
in C:\cygwin\etc with contents
Perhaps something went wrong in the beta release? Note that this problem
 reproduces very well on my system, so I want to share it with you. I 
have seen lots of discouraging of posting messages on the cygwin pages. 
However, I could not find this issue anywhere on the internet. If you 
think this message is not smart or otherwise undesired, please ignore.

Thank you, kind regards, Matthijs.
