Did a clean Cygwin install (mainly BASE) on a new Win2000 machine at work today
with setup.exe built from CVS (as of ~2:00PM).  Everything appeared to install
(from one site, didn't try the multiple) and subsequently work fine, I think
we're getting really close here.  My home machine here is WhyXP, and Kevin Roth
has reported at least some measure of success on NT4, so we've got three good
data points, unless I'm forgetting more.  Has anybody tried it on Win9x yet?
Anybody still *have* Win9x ;-)?

One problem I've been seeing for a while Rob is that the package descriptions in
the chooser window are only showing up on maybe 25% of the pagckages, and just
the package names on the rest.  The old setup shows them on all packages.  Are
you seeing this too / known problem?
