I have been using cygwin on NT 4 on an older machine for some time, but
had to get a replacement machine. However, this time I don't seem to be
able to get
cygwin to install at all. All I really need is bash.
1 First problem was trying to use the standard NT unzip program on the
cygwin gz file.
It hung and I had to reboot the machine (even killing it from task
manager didnt' work!)
2 Then tried using the setup.exe program. This also seemed to get
3 Currently if I try just doing setup cygwin it says that the newest
verison is installed
and doesn't proceed - can I force it to?
4 Tried using the bootstrap.zip files, but it again hung trying to untar
one of the dll files!
What could be the problem please?
