Thank you for your efforts, but do you have read  
http://kde-cygwin.sourceforge.net/kde3/installation.php and  
http://kde-cygwin.sourceforge.net/kde3/compiling.php ? 

I think mostly is written there. Do you have thought about maintaining your 
howto in the future in case of changes ? To avoid this you can update or 
extent the official documentation under the above mentioned links.
You may copy the html text, change and send the resulting file to this list. 

In the last time there some requests for an actual kde/x11 release under 
cygwin. If some people will be with me, we can take this chance to make this 
real happen. For this task an update of the install/compile information is 

In the next time I will update the website with related informations.
