	That's exactly what I did.  But Xastir is NOT installed.  It is
	Downloaded as a gz2 file, whatever that is, but it is NOT
	or processed in any way, it's just sitting there...

	What else am I suposed to do?  Other than the end dialog of
	No other confirmation as to what was installed was present,
	than the CygWin icon on the desktop.

	There is no such path created by the install, from memory,
	as I'm not in front of the machine in question at the mo.

	If that is the case, I assume it can be shortcuted somehow.

	Assuming one can view the Xastir list and any FAQ's it may
	have, just in case they can help.  I can't, content warnings
	and error 404.

	Thanks, I need it!...
