Thanks though!

Unfotunately I'm still making a pig's ear of the installation. I misread the FAQ
thinking it recommended using WinZip to solve the problem... then having done
so, I re-read the FAQ properly :-)

I then made all my mounts binary:

/ -> c:/apps/cygwin
/c -> c:/
/bin -> c:/apps/cygwin/bin
/usr/lib -> c:/apps/cygwin/lib

Now when I run Xinstall, it complains that it can't create symlinks. Aagh.
Maybe I shouldn't have made all the mount points binary.

Thanks for any further enlightenment...
