We have successful installed cygwin-b20.1 which is the
full distribution and at the bash shell we typed the
following:  bash-2.02$  mkdir -p  /tmp
            bash-2.02$  mkdir -p  /bin
and that was successful.

we have locasted the file sh.exe and copied it to the
bash shell and was also successful.

so our problem is with the compiler we installed it
successful but at the bash shell we have been given
the instructions to type this:

1. bash-2.02$  cd /Cygnus/cygwin-b20
2. bash-2.02$  tar zxvf  /tmp/gcc-2.95.2-cygb20.tar.gz
and when we typed in the the second line above we got
this errors:
- tar (grandchild): cannot open the archive /tmp/gcc- 
  2.95.2-cygb20.tar.gz: permission denied
- tar (grandchild): eroor is not recoverable:   
existing  now
-  gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
-  tar: child returned status 1
-  tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

So what could be the problem?  We have no idea. We
have the gcc file on the directory tmp.  Can you help,
