I have not seen any such problems on either of 2 installations of W2K, but I
didn't try B20. I have been using the 19990819 snapshot for 2 months now. I
would suspect either your version of cygwin is too old or there is something
peculiar about your W2K installation (e.g. keyboard driver not correct--that
was one of the reasons I was unable to install W2K on my latest P III Xeon
box; it has non-standard drivers for both keyboard and video, although it can
run linux at reduced resolution). That also would be a reason for installing
dual boot and comparing the performance of cygwin under 2 different OS on the
same hardware. My experience has been that recent cygwin snapshots behaved
much better on a properly working W2K installation than on NT4 or W95. I'm
sure you've noticed that cygwin is targeting NT4SP3 as primary supported OS,
so I accept the ability to work elsewhere gratefully.
