Cygwin involves much more than just cygwin.dll. The cygwin program is an emulated linux environment that runs under windows. To run Cygwin to get a Linux like environment on windows:

1. Go to cygwin's website

2. Download the installation program.

3. Run the installation program carefully choosing the packages you would like to install.

4. Have fun! You can now work in windows using all of the nice UNIX tools such as bash, gcc, x-windows etc.
