The CD-ROM that you are referring to is, apparently, the now-defunct
Cygwin 1.0 release.  ncurses on this CD was in the "contributed" area
and was not officially supported there either.  This should have been
made very clear in the installation instructions for the CD.

However, if you are referencing a link which says that it is supported
or if you know of a location that references the CD at all, please let
me know and I'll delete it.

Btw, the Cygwin FAQ that you reference in this web page is out-of-date.
Thanks for bringing it to my attention.  I've redirected that URL to the
project FAQ which correctly explains the current cygwin licensing.
