to get this working on you cygwin install do this:

1. start cygwin (cygwin.bat or something to that effect)
2. create a .vim directory in your $HOME
2a. create a .vimrc file in your $HOME
3. unzip the in that such that all the subdirs are under .vim/
4. put the following line in your .vimrc file you created earlier:

filetype plugin on

5. restart Vim

NOTE: you're doing 2a. to make sure your Vim starts in 'nocompatible' mode as the snipmate plugin won't work in VI compatibility mode which was default in my Cygwin install.

HTH those who are trying this on a cygwin on XP setup.
