1) Tools like regedt32 (on Win2k/XP) or regedit (on Win9x and NT) should
let you remove the offending registry keys. Another possibility is to
find Cygwin's "umount.exe" on your hard drive (if it's still there) and
run "umount -A -c".
2 and 3) This is really weird. You have selected "Network Install", but
the setup log just stops abruptly in the middle of a download... Which
version of setup are you using? Can you try the latest snapshot from
<http://cygwin.com/setup-snapshots/> and report the results?
If you still have "cygcheck.exe" around, could you also please run it and
post the output?
