Hi everyone,

	well I got as far as compiling and installing, in the same way that Greg did, but...

	When I run top I get the following error..

		top: proc filesystem not mounted on /proc
		     type = 6

	The output of mount is..

	C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\lib\X11\fonts on /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts type system (binmode)
	C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (binmode)
	C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (binmode)
	C:\cygwin on / type system (binmode)
	c: on /cygdrive/c type user (binmode,noumount)
	u: on /cygdrive/u type user (binmode,noumount)
	v: on /cygdrive/v type user (binmode,noumount)

	Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong?  Do I need to explicitly mount /proc?
