Um, what's Edmunds?  ...googling...  Hmm.  A Cygwin CD.  How novel.

Sure, it's practical.  Start the download going before you go to bed.
Even if it fails, you'll be partway there.  Do that for a couple of days
and you'll have what you need.  If you start now, you might even get it
faster than the amount of time it would take to ship a CD.

You found the web site, right?  Some of it is there.  All of it is
available via either the "man" command or the "info" command right
on your computer.

If you want printed documentation, then, AFAIK, the answer is know.
Unless there's a site out there shipping that, too.
