Go to http://cygwin.com/ and follow the links to the legacy version of
Cygwin. The web site mentions "Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Me"
but the link really just brings you to a version of setup (setup-legacy)
which will update/install 1.5.x versions of the packages. These packages
are, of course, no longer updated and offered as-is.
