Dear Sirs:

I followed the directions to the "t" as stated @:

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faqs/text/FAQ_MSWIN

I can not get postgresql to work with cygwin and generate the following 
errors:

$ /usr/sbin/cygserver &
[1] 1396


$ cygserver: Initialization complete.  Waiting for requests.
initdb -D /usr/local/gsql/data -W -E LATIN1

user "sarmstrong".
This user must also own the server process.

The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.

postmaster: could not find the database system
Expected to find it in the directory "/usr/local/pgsql/data",
but could not open file "/usr/local/pgsql/data/global/pg_control": No such 
file
or directory

I am trying to get this to run on Windows.  Please help.

Thanks:)
