Some minor comments about /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/tftp.README:
* confuses config-tftpd with tftpd-config in (at least) two places
* Under 3), it describes the manual way to install the standalone
service instead of the much more convenient "tftpd-config
--standalone" feature. This also leaves the user alone with the
complicated decision whether he has to use cyg_server or not - while
the script would do all this for him.
Perhaps you could also add a hint that the user might want to
change TFTPBOOT and args_value in the script before starting. Or
perhaps you could even make it interactive?
* In one place, you reference /var/log/messages when syslog is running;
you could add that the other place would be the Windows Event log when
syslog is NOT running. I verified that those messages really appear
* The History misses your name. :-)
Apart from that, the new README looks *very* nice! Thanks for that - it
will save us a lot of user's questions!

Build tested successfully.
