Thanks very much for trying this.

Could you send me the output of a Windows DIR command in the directory where
these files are located?  I have a feeling that this might be a upper/lower

I'd also be interested in seeing the cygwin.bat and setup.log files.

Please send them to the cygwin mailing list.

Thanks again,
