I have downloaded all the files that are needed by Cygwin/xastir.  The total is
87megs.  I have placed this is a folder called cygwin-install on a USB flash
memory stick.  This, along with AGWPE, would permit you to have cygwin/xastir
running with a sound card modem on any windows box within 5 minutes from the
USB memory stick.

Those who don't know, you can download cygwin/xastir here
http://www.lintronix.com/winxastir/netinstall.html .  Took 11 minutes on my
cable modem for the whole download and install process.

Although the turnkey install above will give you a few gross maps of the USA and
Europe, internet can be used to pull tiger maps or teraserver photos.  I have
also included the shapefiles sorted by county for my state.  SC for example is
57megs (every street in every county).  http://www.kd4rdb.com/maps/ for some
southern states.

This setup allows me to use a cheap 128meg USB memory stick for maps and xastir
