Setup broke on my install base
Sat Mar 20 08:28:00 GMT 2004
First, try selecting a different mirror. Setup will not re-download the
packages you already have in the cache, even if the mirror is no longer
If you get that problem with all the mirrors, try accessing
<http://mirrors.kernel.org/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/setup.ini> from your
web browser. If you succeed, try to download the packages again after
setting the "Connection" selector to "Use IE5 Settings" in setup.
