errors trying to install cygwin on vista
Mon Dec 11 19:05:00 GMT 2006
Well, I must be dumb cuz I tried everything and it still fails to
complete the install. Always fails with "sed.exe has stopped working".
I guess I'll just wait a while and see if something shows up in the
future. It just will not install for me.
