Pick your favorite mirror, download the Cygwin release directory, setup.exe,
and setup.ini, and burn a CD. Maintain the directory structure from the
mirror (i.e. make sure you have all the packages in the 'release' directory
and that setup.exe and setup.ini are in the parent directory.) Put all this
in a directory called "cygwin" on the CD as well. You can, of course, weed
out packages you don't want to install and/or older versions of packages and
source from the release directory, to make it fit nicely on 1 CD. Be aware
that you're bound by the GPL to include source for any binaries you
"distribute" with this CD, so it's best to keep the source on the CD for
packages you include.
See the email archives for more discussion of this topic if you still have
questions. It's been discussed there allot, so you should find the answers
to just about any question you might have about this process.
