As in the previous version I ran (unfortunately I don't have it anymore),
when executing the Cygwin desktop icon, gave me a prompt as per tutorial I
found that goes as follows:

 you@I23 ~
    $ _

>From here I could cd to a any folder on my c: drive, and compile c++
programs etc. With this new version I am getting only the bash-2.05b$ prompt
from where nothing works. I can't change directories, g++ --version returns
a "command not found" error. I read a lot about setting a path, but I'm not
sure where it should point to exactly, and trying to set a path does not
work either. When I type only "cd", it gives the error "/home/Hotdog: No
such file or directory".

I am running WinXP with SP1 and the latest security patch. I am possibly
missing something important, but I can't put my finger on it. I removed the
older version of Cygwin using the procedure as described in the FAQ before
installing this 1.32 version.

Please read <>, in particular the bit about
attaching cygcheck output.  This output will contain the information about
your machine and your Cygwin installation.  The cygcheck executable should
be in c:\cygwin\bin, provided you installed in the standard suggested
