If you haven't installed USB, that's worth trying.  It's really needed with
osr2.5.  It should be in a directory on the CD, such as /other/updates.  Best
re-install W95 first, to make sure nothing is corrupted.  Install doesn't work
while USB is installed.

Some programs seem to expect to see the cygnus installation directory as if
the drive is mounted on a directory named according to the drive letter.  A
recent posting indicated an effort to get away from this (b20.2?).

Congratulations.  It was difficult even to get that far on my initial b20.1
installation.  That also is a change which has been discussed favorably, and
is working for me.

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"gnu-win32-request@cygnus.com" with one line of text: "help".
