Does anybody have an idiots guide to obtaining the cygwin DLL file
that's required for the windows version? 

Christoph Hormann's page simply says 

  For running this version you will need the Cygwin DLL that is 
  available on http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/ 

but the installer on that page asks all sorts of questions that I don't
seem to be guessing the correct answers to, and I just seem to have
ended up with an icon for the PIF for the Cygnus Bash Shell (whatever
that is) on my dektop, and a C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\latest directory full of
*.tar.gz files (whatever they are), but no DLLs.

The setup program allows to selectively download the single packages.  You
only need cygwin-x.x.x.tar.gz where x.x.x stands for the version number,
for example:

ftp://ftp.franken.de/pub/win32/develop/gnuwin32/cygwin/mirrors/cygnus/latest/cygwin/cygwin-1.1.8-2.tar.gz

or from any other mirror site.  

If you have already installed cygwin, the dll is probably in the /bin
directory of the cygwin installation (you specified it after starting the
installation).  If you only downloaded the packed files, look for the one
starting with cygwin and unpack it.

Hey Mike, I had the exact problem... You just have to run the instalation
program and select "Install from Internet", then it's going to ask for some
things, internet connection, etc. and then it's going to give you a list of
things. Select ONLY cygwin(don't-remember-the-exact-name) (note that for
selecting you mustn't use the square box, you click on the version)... you
have to unselect all others... i think then it'll download and install the
thing automatically.
bye
