To which FAQ are you referring.  The only one that I can find is:

    http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faq-mswin

Although my use of PostgreSQL on Windows 98 was casual and very short in
duration, PostgreSQL 7.0.2 seemed to run fine.  To what Cygwin missing
features on Windows 9X or Me are you referring?  Note that this inquiry
is purely academic.  When forced to use Windows I would only seriously
consider using NT 4.0 or 2000 -- never 9X or Me.

Thanks,
Jason
