To be precise, the text surrounding the link that you are referring to
"For Cygwin licensing or commercial support, please visit the Red Hat
Cygwin Product site."
i.e., it is another site entirely from http://cygwin.com/ . The
reference is for a *commercial* release of Cygwin that is provided by
Red Hat. If you want to use the commercial software then you should be
contacting Red Hat directly.
OTOH, I sincerely doubt that you found any discussion of the cygwin net
release install procedure at the Red Hat site so if you found words
about installation at http://cygwin.com which you find confusing, you're
going to, again, have to provide a reference so that we can either fix
the words or clarify them for you.
