Re: Cygwin without installing

I'm not sure just where the CD is coming into place here.  Are you
considering creating a CD to contain a runable snapshot of cygwin so you
don't have to install cygwin on a particular PC?  If the answer is yes,
then my answer is yes it can be done.  I've done it with B20 and hope to
do it again with a more recent snapshot.

It gets a little trickey.  You can't use symbolic links on the CD medium
because the ISO9660 standard does not support the notion of "system
file" attributes.  You have to handle it using mounts.
