How do I install the vi text editor ONLY on my Cygwin installation?

I have managed to install the Cygwin on my Windows Vista machine. I installed using the default settings.

Setup.exe doesn't install everything unless you ask it to. What it does do by default is to mark for update any packages that you already have installed and of which newer versions are available. If you don't want that, select the 'Keep' button near the top right of the package selection screen before you select vim.
