Also, if you plan to run programs from the Windows command line rather
than from Cygwin bash, you'll need to add c:\cygwin\bin (or whatever the
/bin directory resolves to) to the system PATH.
BTW, to avoid the DOS window, use the "run" utility from the
X-startup-scripts package, or use "cygstart" from the cygutils package.
