So I definitely do >not have that. I have had cygwin installed on my machines for the past 3 or 4 years, and it hasn't (as far as I know) damaged anything in windows. But I have it well down the search path, so it doesn't usually get first call on anything that I have installed elsewhere, unless I start a cygwin console window or use the full path. It is useful for some odd bits and pieces and gives me reasonably convenient access to some unix-like utilities I occasionally need without having to have a separate unix box or dual boot. And I *never* use the cygwin version of CVS - don't even know if I installed it... ought to check that really. Tim
