OK, now what?

I tried downloading the current version of cygwin today.  Yes, I've read
the FAQ and the readme's.  Perhaps its just been a long day, but I've
executed setup.exe and after clicking on the cygwyn desktop icon, the DOS
window pops up with

     I have no name!IBM-R4I1LNZXQ9E ~

in the display.  I've probably missed setting an environment variable or
two and perhaps I need to create password entries, but I don't know exactly
for what.  (The new user documentation is a bit sparse.)  Oh yeah, I looked
in the c:\cygwin\cygwin.bat file.  The readme file shows an environment
variable being set and the path being set but I only see the following in
my file:

     @echo off

     chdir \cygwin\bin

     bash --login -i

Take care,
