Thanks - they just indicate that the download is incomplete:

Um, I went ahead and scrubbed Cygwin completely already. (In fact, my
attempt to install direct from the internet failed; I'd chosen "Direct
Connection", not "Use IE5 Settings".  Normally we use our mirror, in
which case we choose "Use proxy settings", and point it to the port and
proxy server to access our mirror on the LAN.  SO I don't think IE5
comes into it?)

Unfortunately, the install direct from the internet (as opposed to our
mirror) failed in the same way, though a different package, as you can
see above (_update-info-dir-00227-1).

I also could not remove the C:\cygwin directory and a few files under
it (var/log/sshd.log, I think), and nor could I take ownership.  In
fact no one could delete that except by running checkdisk to schedule a
file system check for the NTFS C: partition, and rebooting.  After
that, I was able to delete c:\cygwin via Windows Explorer (though WE
crashed immediately after.  Sigh.)

I tried again installing from our mirror, and it failed with an
incomplete download message on TeXmacs-  I chose not to try
again, and then setup terminated with a runtime exception (as it always
does in that situation: "Runtime exception ... This application has
requested that the Runtime terminate it in an unusual way.  Please
contact the application's support team for more information.").

It also left no log files at all under c:/cygwin/var/log (in fact, the
directory had not been created), and the next time I ran setup it had
not remembered any of the settings I'd chosen.

I just tried again and it failed the same way, the same package, and
didn't create the log directory so I can't give more details.  It did
remember my setup settings the 2nd time, though.

So, actually, I'm pretty badly off - I have no Cygwin any more (I have
an old version of U/Win I've used to collect some of the info above). 
Oh, speaking of which, here's the U/Win ls and md5sum for our setup
directory in our mirror:

Thanks, I'll have a look - if I can figure out how to install Cygwin

The mirror site we are currently using, and which I used last night for
the direct attempt, was  (I didn't know that I'd chosen
the same site that our SysAdmin rsync to make our mirror, when I chose

Setup.exe says it's version 2.427.  Our mirror is 2.06GB (2,220,822,916 bytes),
2,739 files, 491 folders.  Sept 3rd 2004.

I'll try another reboot and see if that helps.
