Cygwin 1.5.25 seems like a good option. So I downloaded setup-legacy.exe 
from fruitbat and ran it on an XP machine which has not previously seen 
Cygwin. Initially I installed just the base Cygwin files. The process ran 
as expected, and installed 4,263 files in 472 folders. 

However the bash shell appears non-functional as far as external commands 
go. It presents a prompt bash-3.2$, if I type something like ls, it 
responds command not found. Any ideas?
