When you select the XFree86-base version it should automatically select 
several other XFree86 packages.  Make sure that the "Bin" column is 
selected for each of these packages, or else nothing will be installed 
at all.

Also, make sure that you know how to start Cygwin/XFree86 once it is 
installed; note that there is not a new icon when XFree86 is installed, 
you have to find the batch file yourself:
