RE: Making GCC 2.95.2 Problems

I am sorry.  The link I referenced was from Earnie Boyd that I got from this
group a while back.  I spent a decent amount of time there in trying to set
up my directory structure and mounting the drives.  I followed the links at to download gcc 2.95 and the available
instruction for setting this up for doing the configuring and making of gcc.
Earnie's page had a "good starting point" for my directory structure, but
nothing directly related to gcc.  I was pretty sure that I didn't have my
directories mounted correctly.  I wasn't trying anything fancy and the gcc
stuff wasn't working.  I was trusting that the gcc stuff would work if I
followed their instructions, so I was guessing that Cygnus was getting
confused with how I had set up my environment.

For Dony, the text file attached is Earnie's page that I was referencing.  I
also spent a good amount of time in, which
you can follow links to from Earnie's page.  This is the Cygwin's users
guide.  Very informative as well.  Maybe I am not reading enough or putting
the correct readings together?

       I cannot visit

Can you download this page and mail a copy to me, please?
I will follow this page to  build my gcc tools.
Thanks very much.
