I've gotten it to work reasonably well on Vista Home Premium.
Try running the Cygwin setup as Administrator and in XP
Compatibility Mode. Also, I had better luck when I did the
install in two stages: first, I just downloaded the packages,
then I ran setup again and chose the install from local
repository option. Finally, make sure that your firewall is
not blocking Xwin.exe or bash.exe.
I also agree with Holger regarding Xming. Xming works just
fine on Vista, and you can use Xming as your X Server when
running PuTTY or many if not all of the Cygwin X-based apps.
Hope this helps,
