Problems with setup.exe - no bin directory

I just ran setup.exe It did not create a bin directory. It
created a lib, a sbin, a tmp, and a usr. They seem to be full of stuff
but no bin. I uninstalled and reinstalled making sure nothing vital
seemed to be skipped in particular that the base install was occurring.
Everything seemed fine. For example all bash supporting files seem to be
there but no bash executable.

A cygwin.bat was created containing:

@echo off

chdir d:\cygwin\bin

bash --login -i

But obviously as there is no bin nothing happens.

I am running this on Windows XP.

Can anyone shed any light on this?
