setup.exe -R c:\cygwin -s ftp://mirrors.rcn.net -n -q
works for me. I have is as a shortcut in my Startup folder, so it runs with
every reboot. (c:\cygwin is where cygwin is installed;
ftp://mirrors.rcn.net is my preferred mirror, change both as appropriate for
you.) See http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2002-11/msg01490.html for more.
