Cygwin on FAT16 is very huge !


Hello,

Can anyone explain the following strange thing :

When installing Cygwin (downloaded from ftp.funet.fi on 08/23/2002) on a
NTFS partition (W2000 box), the full release (all packages installed)
occupies about 700+ MO.
When installing it  on a FAT16 partition (W98 box), the same full
release uses 1.8+ GO !

I need to install the full release in less than 1 GO.
How can I do that ?

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestion,

Pierre
