Install under win98

I'm installing using the 2.29 version of setup.exe after downloading the files
and having cygwin install from a local directory.  I have let cygwin run the
install and after installing, I find that there is no .bashrc and no .profile in
the home directory or in any directory on my hard drive.  Also, I create a
sample program (hello.c) and compile it (gcc hello.c) and get a.exe.  When I try
to run a.exe, I get the following message:
BASH:  a: command not found

I turned off Mcafee and pretty much anything else before installing and removed
any other sign of cygwin in the registry before the install.  I'm missing
something but I don't see what.  I've looked through the FAQ and the user guide
but haven't seen anything that jumps out at me.

Here is cygcheck -r -v -s.

As you could tell, I'm a newbie trying to learn programming and looking for an
inexpensive (free) compiler that will work well and is supported well.
