I mean that when you get to the msysgit downloads page, you pick the
"Git-1.7.4-preview20110204.exe" (current version). As that makes for the
minimal install. The others will install even more stuff that is not
needed for just *using* Git. I was confused because the instructions
from the TurtoiseGit site where not clear. And neither where the ones
from msysgit.
