Installing Fuego [#1936]

Does anyone here know how to install and run FUEGO?
I downloaded the FUEGO 0.4 TAR.gz archive and extracted it to a directory, and found a fuego.exe file. When I run it, a command window opens with the message
Loading opening book from '/cygdrive/c/Go/Fuego/fuego-0.4/book.dat'... ok
but after that it appears to be waiting for me to do something, and I haven't a clue. Any ideas? I've also downloaded and extracted the zip file for GOGui.
Also, c/Go/Fuego/fuego-0.4/book.dat is a pathname on my hard drive. I also have cygwin installed, so I imagine cygdrive has something to do with that.

I think the fact that you have cygwin installed is a red herring. I don't have it installed, and I get the same result. I think the Fuego engine is just a move server that talks the GTP protocol to a GTP client, i.e. a Go board Gui of some description. I've tried SmartGo, but with no success. I see that the Fuego web-site recommends GoGui or Drago, so it may be easier to get it working with those. I think it perhaps doesn't answer the initial GTP handshaking question correctly, preventing SmartGo talking to it.
I have been successful with using Drago as the gui to play against Fuego, using the instructions at http://www.godrago.net/Engines.htm , so try that for yourself.
