Use http://cygwin.com/Setup.exe to download them. If you're wondering why
they're not installed automagically, you should have read this part of
http://cygwin.com front page:
Note also that, by default, setup.exe does not install everything.
Only the base cygwin distribution is installed by default. When
running setup.exe, clicking on categories and packages in the package
installation screen will provide you with the ability to control what
is installed or updated. For instance, clicking on the "Default" field
next to the "All" category will provide you with the opportunity to
install every Cygwin package. Be advised that this will download and
install hundreds of megabytes to your computer. The best plan is
probably to click on individual categories and install either entire
categories or packages from the categories themselves.
If you're wondering where to find the packages you need, use the Setup
Package Search (see the main page, on the left side, under "Software")

That's another story. In short, you should use ssh to switch user context.
As for the details, you can always hope someone else will enlighten you,
because I personally can't.
