Yeah, I didn't realize that CygWin was just a development program...

That clears things up

I have the windows frontend, and am starting to understand this whole
project enough to start helping on it, and I was just excited to use linux

I would assume that you are using windows by your mentioning cygwin. cygwin
allows you to compile linux/unix apps on your windows box. This does not
that you can run them but cygwin is deffinatly a compiler for compileing
programs. Bibiletime for right now can only be run under linux/unix. There
no way to compile this and run it under windows.

Sword does come with a windows frontend and you should not need to use
bibletime to use it.
