The cygwin SETUP.EXE accepts a comma-delimited list of packages to 
install. To install cygwin and the packages listed as prerequisites on 
use this syntax:

setup.exe -P 

This still launches the GUI and you still need to manually choose 
installation paths etc, but the packages passed via command line are 
pre-selected and you don't have to crawl down the big list.

Hope this info is useful, etc.
