Hi Jeff,

> I'm trying to install openmpi under cygwin on windows vista, 32 bit version.

It's very difficult to build Open MPI under cygwin, there was a thread
talking about this before. See:

> Is there a version of openmpi that works under cygwin on windows vista?

It should work, but the build process is complex and time consuming. I
wouldn't recommend it.

Yes, with CMake and Visual Studio.

Please check the wiki page with detailed instructions of using it :

> Does openmpi require cygserver?

If build with CMake, it doesn't use SSH or RSH for launching remote
process, so cygserver is not necessary.

> Does cygserver work under windows vista?

I don't know about this. Sorry.

Hope this would help.
