No, windows*.html pages on are stalled, they were renamed
to cygwin.html more than one year ago (commit
2a885250c835ea34f454275b07c1ba50c8a626a6; I've played with gitk to
discover this), but the links weren't updated.

I'm fixing it right now for all languages. Updating committishes is up
to the translators as usual. The webmasters (Jan & Han-Wen) may want to
junk the old windows*.html pages.

GUB is a package providing all dependencies (excepted on
Linux), so you should never worry about dependencies. There is a link to
GUB readme at bootom of web/install.

Regarding other installation advice, I don't want to speak for the main
hackers, but you are free to write some blurb like where and what to
click for installing and getting started for the Windows version (to be
put in install/windows.html?), like what already exists about Cygwin.
