The Ubuntu help says that if you download Cygwin (link:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM), you can follow the
Linux directions. I'm using the Cygwin shell and it is not working. I
downloaded the file to C. I type:
So far, so good. The (zippied) file ubutuntu-8.04-desktop-i386.iso is
sitting in C:\. So I type:
"No such file or directory."
Ah well. Cygwin does not seem to be a very newbie-friendly
application. "Help cd" offers one a starkly technical little
paragraph. Incidentally, how does one even go to the Desktop directory
(which lies at C:\Documents and Settings\Ben\Desktop for me) with
Cygwin? Whenever you put in a space, Cygwin seems to reject it.
