I ran into the same stumbling block. I didn't have to wait very long for the
download to fail. I sure would like to have emacs in both environments. Thanks for
your work in that area

Great idea, didn't work for me :-(
Downloaded setup.exe (184.108.40.206) from mirror.ac.uk, took 'install from
internet', 'direct connection' choices, got as far as the
step and nothing happened. Cancelled after several minutes, same
thing. Any way I can help with more information? Running Win2K,
Cygwin1.1.8, no problems with Cygwin setup in the past, and I checked
just now and it got past the mirrors.lst step without problems.
