I was installing cygwin for the first time on a Win7-32bit box. It is hanging in postinstall, with "0/Perpetual" and "/etc/postinstall/0p_texlive_prep.dash. I've tried this twice now, and it hangs effectively forever on this step (waited 15-20 minutes each time). What other information could I provide? I looked at the end of the setup.log file, but that just indicates that installation was complete.
