One thing wrong I see right away is the statement that for a single-user
workstation, the "Install For" option doesn't matter.  This has been the
source of numerous complaints on the list when people set up Cygwin for
"Just Me" and then try installing sshd (or any services) - there are no
mount tables for LocalSystem.  I would correct the first two sentenses of
that paragraph to something like:
	If you have enough privileges on the system, it's always better to
	install for "All Users".  The only reason to install for "Just Me"
	is no write access to the HKLM registry key or the All Users Start
And leave the ntsec reference intact.
