I've downloaded Cygwin 1.3.2 from 2 different sites onto
2 different WinNT 4.0 machines and have done an install.
The installation hangs while untarring mingw-20010424-1.tar.gz.
Even if I unistall "mingw", then install just that one component the
Specifically the process, "Mcshield.exe", runs at 99% CPU and rebooting
the machine is close to impossible. A hard reset is necessary.
I've done this at least 5 times in hopes that it would succeed. (foolish thought)
Any one else have this problem, and what is mingw? (do I need it for running anything else)
