Sure you can. Just convince someone to snail mail you a CDROM burn. The
install from local directory feature of setup.exe works as expected. I
always keep a CDROM with a Cygwin download as part of my backup strategy...
I would offer to send a copy of that, but I did not download the source
packages onto a CDROM, so I would be violating the GPL should you then turn
around and ask for those next...
If of interest, I could prepare a complete CDROM set with source and
binaries for installation when I get some free time on my hands.
