Umm, there shouldn't be a c:\cygwin if you've specified a different local
root. It looks like either setup.exe or some packages have a hard-wired
dependence on c:\cygwin, and that should be fixed. Could you please post
the list of files you have in c:\cygwin after this dummy install? Just a
"cd c:/cygwin && tar cvf /dev/null ." should suffice.
