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

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.
