Use rsync to create a copy of the directory structure from one of
the Cygwin mirrors.  You can skip the "release-legacy" and the
"unsupported" subdirectories.

Right.  When you start setup, choose "Install from Local Directory".
As "Local Package Directory", enter the path to the flash drive
directory which contains the setup.ini file.
