The download and FAQ pages suggest that there is a single-file
distribution for MinGW, but looking at the download page I can't work
out which file this is. Which one is it? I assume it's one of the many
files in the "Current" section?
Also, what do I need for MSYS? Do I just need MSYS-1.0.10.exe, or do I
also need some files from the "MSYS Developer Tool Kit"?
I want to be able to compile and run programs, use makefiles etc. If
it's any help in offering advice, I am trying to compile programs that
use libusb-win32 (http://libusb-win32.sourceforge.net/) - they seem to
suggest using MinGW and MSYS. I've tried a gcc from another place
(DJGPP), but haven't been able to make it work with libusb-win32, so
thought I'd try MinGW since that's what their instructions use. The only
problem is what to download for MinGW/MSYS?

Thanks - I had overlooked the wiki! Very useful it was too. I searched
the mailing list / forums, but missed the link to the wiki. Anyway, I've
got it working fine now :-D
