I take that back about the installation going fine. You do need to
address the toscheck problems. You said that you already had cygwin
installed -- I'm wondering if you don't have the rpm package installed
because it doesn't appear as though many of the packages were

This is pretty easy to recover from if this is the case:
1) get the rpm package from cygwin
2) install the rpms which you will find in /usr/src/rpm/RPMS/i386.
Install tools first and the tinyos* rpms later as the latter have
dependencies on the former.
