You got me on that one.
Other wordsm you right, I was wrong.
Just tried install Cygwin. Good. Tried it from the DOS. Had to change BASH
in CYGWIN.BAT. I put it back while still in the DOS prompt with bat running.
gave me the error. Never change while cygwin.bat is running. Alway start a
new DOS window, then run CYGWIN.
