I have the same problem .
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
1. ipc-daemon2 --install-as-service
(ipc-daemon2 was installed ok)

2. mkdir /data

3. cygrunsrv --install postmaster --path /usr/bin/postmaster --args "-D /data -i" --dep ipc-daemon2 --termsig INT --user goreXP --shutdown
(where goreXP in the admin in winXP)

4. bash$ chown goreXP /data

5. cygrunsrv -S ipc-daemon2
(ipc-daemon2 was started ok)

6. bash$ initdb -D /data

.. and I get:
The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "goreXP".
This user must also own the server process.
The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.

bash$

what is wrong? (... or I'm done with PostgreSQL)
(... and, yes, winXP/2000 is the only option I have!)
