Dear all,
I need help. I am trying to install Gromacs using Cygwin. However, I do not seem to have access to it. I am very new with Cygwin. I just followed the steps provided by the following sites: 
http://machine-phase.blogspot.com/2009/04/how-to-install-gromacs-on-windows-vista.html and http://www.gromacs.org/Downloads/Installation_Instructions/Cygwin_HOWTO
but in the end when I type "luck" it returns "command not found".
These are the steps I did. 
1. Downloaded fftw-3.2.2 and gromacs-4.5.3 and saved them in C:\Packages
2. After installing cygwin, I changed directory by typing in the following in order to work with fftw-3.2.2
cd /cygdrive/c/Packages/fftw-3.2.2
and then I typed in
./configure --enable-threads --enable-sse w--enable-float
followed by
make install
2. I then worked for the gromacs-4.5.3 by typing in
cd /cygdrive/c/Packages/gromacs-4.5.3 
and then 
./configure --enable-shared LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib"
make install
make links
make clean

3. I typed "luck" after all the procedures above but what I get is "command not found". I am still at /cygdrivec/Packages/gromacs-4.5.3.
Is this the correct path to run the gromacs?
Please help.
