You generally don't need to configure your hardware to run Cygwin. Cygwin
is a software emulation layer *on top* of Windows. If your Windows runs,
so should Cygwin.

Most of the information about Cygwin is on the Cygwin web site
(<http://cygwin.com/>) and in the mailing list archives
(<http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/>). There is a "cygwin-doc" documentation
package that contains the User's guide, the FAQ, and some other things, in
case you prefer having the files on your local machine instead of online.
You install "cygwin-doc" using the setup.exe application (which you'll
read about in the link I provided for question #1), and it should add a
Start Menu item for Cygwin documentation.

Hope this helps,
P.S. It would have helped to have a better subject in your message (see
the one I've changed it to). I almost dismissed your message as SPAM
based on the subject. Just FYI.
