Just wanted to weigh in on this issue...

I tried the Cygnus/Windows thing a while ago and never made it far, all sorts of install errors and other issues beat me back. My solution was to just to use Samba on the machine which ran GRASS (in my case a Slackware linux), giving me access to my Windows network. Thus, keeping GRASS on a *nix system and installing Samba (or other appropriate networking software) seemed to be easier than trying to get the Cygnus/Window thing going.

I have the same request. Especially knowing what to install in Cygwin in order 
for GRASS to run would be interesting.
