Default directory is "C:\PROGRA~1\RATIONAL\RATION~1\NUTCROOT\mksnt\"?

Hi all.  I just downloaded and installed Cygwin onto a Windows 2000
Server computer.  I chose to do "All: Install".  After all was said and
done, I started the Xserver, then ran Xterm via the Start Menu (as it
didn't pop up on its own).

I got a Xterm window for about 30 seconds with the following line:

xterm: Could not exec
C:\PROGRA~1\RATIONAL\RATION~1\NUTCROOT\mksnt\sh.exe: No such file or

I copied sh.exe to the directory it wanted.  Now I get the following
error when I open an xterm:

     70 [main] sh 1676 child_copy: stack write copy failed,
0x22E4D0..0x230000, done 0, windows pid 2286596, Win32 error 5
-C:\PROGRA~1\RATIONAL\RATION~1\NUTCROOT\mksnt\sh: fork: No error

Since I made my install directory C:\cygwin, why the heck is it now
looking in someplace I never go to?  How do I fix this?
