        As the other post stated, it's better to download the full package
if you haven't yet.  Otherwise, I've noticed that cygwin has issues
sometimes correctly updating the path variables, especially on 2000 and
I'd assume XP (since they use the same nt-like mechanism).

        Go make sure that c:\cygwin\bin\  (or whereever your binaries are
located) are actually in the path.
