Hi 

I am a new user to Cygwin. I have installed the windows version of the Cygwin. I am able to execute ipc-daemon.exe, initdb, postmaster etc. But whenever I am trying to enter 

    $su 
or 
    $su - -c "createuser postgres"
or
    $su - postgres

I am getting "su: user root does not exist" as an error. 

What is the cause for this? What is the remedy?

Thanks in advance
