notice that the error message came up for "setup.ini.sig".

IIUC that is an encryption signature file -- it ensures that the binaries
you are downloading are the ones that the packager prepared and not some
evil trojaned version.

We don't sign our cygwin packages, so we don't have that. I wonder if the
newest version of cygwin has some new requirement which makes third party
packages harder to install?

if so, you might try the manual install method given at the end of the
cygwin download page.

you are the first to see this error, if it is a new cygwin thing I guess
that others will soon by reporting the same message.
or maybe there is some "install trusted packages only" checkbox somewhere
which needs to be unchecked.

good luck,

Yeah I think that I will do the manual install..  That will probably work. 
So when I download the files is it a matter of just cutting the grass files
into the correct cygwin folder?  Is anything else needed?  Will cygwin
recognize the grass folders then automatically?
