Setup for "basic" development

Sat Dec 26 21:46:00 GMT 2009

Hi, I've used various distros of Linux *just* long enough to know commands
like ls, cat, gcc something -o something, and cd. I was trying to setup
Cygwin but when I got to the window with stacks of checkboxes to tick or not
tick I got bewildered. What do I tick so that I can compile simple C
programs, use basic Unix commands, have Vim, ie. use a Linux shell to
replace Command Prompt?
