Hi everyone,

I downloaded today´s setup.exe from http://cygwin.com/ and have problems running it.
I want to run it as a non-administrator-user to just download the files. So I say "Just downlioad",
then I give it the proxy settings for my network. 

The first problem is an empty mirror list. Then I add mirror urls and try to proceed but it is unable to
retrieve the setup.bz2/.ini from any of the different mirrors. I checked the setup.log but it does not 
give any error codes or reasons why downloading failed. I appended my complete mirror log. I am running WinXP Professional SP2.

Of course I searched the mailinglist. The posts that resembled my problem were answered with "Try another mirror".
Well I tried all the mirrors in this log in my Firefox. I double-checked the proxy settings. Is there a way to make setup.exe output errors in more detail ?
