I have a couple of questions about cygwin.

1.) I have it set up. I thought I did a full install, however I cannot get man pages for anything. It is missing all the files. Is there another component that I can install? Or can I copy them over from my fedora box?

2.) How do I enable ssh server on cygwin? Do I need another component installed? Can someone give me the procedure?

3.) Will ssh support graphical mode too? Suppose I am ssh'd into a fedora box and run gvim. Will I get the gvim window on my win box?

cygwin sshd
so long as you have the X11 packages installed you can use X forwarding so long as you use the xterm loaded using startx
