Same with me,  setup fails unless it is copied to the root of my
harddrive (C:\). After that it seems to install every single .tar.gz
file it finds on my drive (And that's quite a number of files 8-) ),
so I hit Ctrl-C ofter the first files that were definetely not part of
the distribution.

/usr/bin and /usr/lib exist, but are not visible.

The solution is to first create an empty directory
<CYGWIN-DIR>\usr\bin and <CYGWIN-DIR>\usr\lib and then start
cygwin.bat.

The mounter then overlays /bin to /usr/bin and the directories are
visible.

Greetings
