I endorse Tsjerk's comments wholeheartedly. I don't know why you didn't 
search the GROMACS website for steps for using it on Windows, as I've 
had a Cygwin-installation HOWTO there for several years. :-) Every one 
of the "how to get help for GROMACS" pages suggests searching web pages 
and Google before posting on these lists, but many people overlook 
those... That usually costs them time and effort.

If you really think the available installation documents lack proper 
guidance, then please feel free to suggest improvements. We're all 
volunteers, but people might be motivated to fix things if the target 
audience can convince them that things aren't documented well enough. 
That process takes more effort than making general negative comments, 
however :-)
