- Subject: how to freeze a version of cygwin
In order to ensure that I could reinstall a working cygwin version if
necessary, I have in the past used the "download from internet" option in
setup, then burned the installation files to a CD. However, it looks like
the same files are downloaded and retained if one selects "install from
internet". Is that correct? Can one reliably reinstall from only a CD copy
of the download directory generated by using "install from internet"?

In short, this is an unsafe way to make a backup freeze? If I want a safe
backup, I should continue to "download from internet" first? What is your
recommended procedure for making a backup freeze of a partial installation?
