How do you want to handle the two versions?

Assuming enough disk space you could use both in full and mix 'n' match.
In the cygwin.bat file for each of these you'll add a line to change the root /
to point to the correct directory for that set and add a shortcut to the
desktop for each cygwin.bat.
E.G.: mount -b -f d:/Cygwin/CD /
mount -b -f d:/Cygwin/Net /
mount -b -f d:/Cygwin/Combo /
The downside of this is that you can only use a single set at a time. Once the
mount takes place it happens for the children of the current session as well.
