I have had Cygwin before, and had to format recently. I just installed the same stuff that I had last time, but this time theres something wrong that I cant figure out and I need your help nick. Heres some of the things wrong. I have alot of it installed.. my Cygwin folder is 302mb big and heres what works/dont work.

bash-2.05b$ ls
bash: ls: command not found
bash-2.05b$ make
bash: make: command not found
bash-2.05b$ cd d
bash: cd: d: No such file or directory
bash-2.05b$ man make
bash: man: command not found
bash-2.05b$ cygcheck -s
bash: cygcheck: command not found

That's after I ran the Exe it created. Those commands dont work but when I go and look around, I see if have all the .exes for those commands and I should. Whats wrong?

Er.. uninstall cygwin with the setup prog, then install
it making sure you select the "Install" option rather than the "Default" option.

Then run cygwin.exe.. that should take care of any problems you have, assuming you have all the req'd packages on disk.
