ODBC driver, instructions & FAQ at

Don't need to install cygwin at all; unless you don't have a
Linux/Unix/BSD box to use as the PostgreSQL *server*.

If you want to run psql natively under Windows, you can get a copy with
the excellent pgadmin tool, Personally, I prefer
to run psql through telnet or ssh on my Linux box, as it's faster & can
use readline.

There's a ML to discuss ODBC+PostgreSQL at pgsql-odbc(at)postgresql(dot)org(dot)
