I'm try to put a cygwin installation (not the installer; a full-blown

put it on CD, and then by means of a batch file, have that CD act as a
portable cygwin installation.
Can you use IU's Cygwin-based XLiveCD?
It does look good, and I wasn't aware of it. Thanks for the link.
Unfortunately, it won't quite do what I want. I doesn't have tetex,
which is definitely one of my must-have packages.
However, it does look like they got the symlinks to work on the cd, so
if I can figure how to do that myself, I'm set. I don't see anything in
their docs that indicates how they constructed the CD image though.
