Yes, but I'm sure it needs some discussion. To satisfy every interest
there should be a dialog or a choose box at the beginning of the setup,
or it may depend on the OS, on NT I have no greater problems using cmd
since it is resizable by default, but on Win98 I have this really bad
command.com shell window.

Maybe a hint in the FAQ with an example how to start up rxvt
in x:\cygwin\cygwin.bat from a shortcut on the desktop is
sufficient for the beginning?
Something like this:
REM your drive and path here:
REM -sr scrollbar rightside, -sl 2500 lines big, -sb scrollbar active, -fg textcolor,
REM -bg backgroundcolor,-geometry size, -tn terminaltype, -cr cursorcolor,
REM -fn font+size, -e eval this command
rxvt -sr -sl 2500 -sb -geometry 90x30 -fg lightblue -bg midnightblue -cr red -tn rxvt -fn "Lucida Console-14" -e /usr/bin/bash --login -i
