Subject: setting up cygwin environment but have a package question

setting up cygwin environment but have a package question

Hi list.
Recently I had to reinstall my laptop as a result, I now have to reinstall cygwin.
However I have a few questions that I hope someone might be able to answer.
I am blind, and as I am sure the list remembers the cygwin package selection screen is completely unuseable with jaws.
As a result, I have someone sighted to help me with selecting only the packages I want and need, as I don't want to waste over 2 gbs of space on my hard drive for no reason.
However, I was wondering if someone might be able to tell me what categories two packages I would like to install are in, as the setup has a lot of categories to go searching in.
The packages I am interested in are quilt and grep.
I no the cygwin site has a facility for searching packages, however when you do the search it doesn't tell you what categories the packages are located in so you can select them when installing cygwin. And obviously just downloading the files from the search results is no good, as you won't have a clue what dependencies they need or anything.
I would be very grateful for any help.
