I use both (cygwin for Octave and for compiling ATLAS lib; mingwin for
compiling R) on the same Win XP computer, and there is no problems. Just
place then in different directories.

I am about to install a program on my windows XP computer
which seems to require cygwin installed. Will it cause any problems
to have both cygwin and mingwin installed, I need mingwin to
compile R packages?
