I understand. Maybe I should have explained what I was up to:
The 'big' goal  is to have cygwin with OpenSSH running on some low-bandwidth
W2K systems for remote maintenance.
To do that, I wanted to make a setup CD-ROM to run cygwin on some machines
that don't have a high speed internet connection.
Then on those low-bandwidth machines, run wanted to run setup.exe from
CD-ROM and install from that local directory tree.
Since I use wget for almost all the other site mirroring stuff, I thought
that would be a good path to follow.
Starting setup.exe having that make a download seems to work much better
