Setup does it all. Based on what you wrote, I'll assume you selected
"Download from Internet" mode. Now just run Setup again and this time
select "Install From Local Directory." Now the subsequent stages of the
Setup wizard will differ from that the first time out.
First Setup will ask you where on your local system you want your
Cygwin root. Choose anything _other than the directory where Setup
runs_. The top-level directory (/) of any given volume is also not
recommended, but is allowed. Also choose whether you want the
installation to be just for you or for everyone who uses that computer.
Lastly, choose whether you want Windows text files to be converted to
and from Unix style when Cygwin programs read from and write to them
(DOS, also referred to as "text mode") or whether all file content
should remain unchanged (Unix, also referred to as "bin mode").
Next proceed to select the local directory from which packages should
be installed. Probably the pre-filled directory name is correct.
When you move the next step you can choose which packages you want
installed and whether you want their source code installed, too.
Moving on from that stage will begin the installation. Setup will run
all necessary post-install scripts required to finalize the
installation and make it fully functional.
