Dear Sir/Madam,

I have just installed Cydwin with Postgresql (8.0.4), and followed the 
page http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faqs.FAQ_CYGWIN.html to create new 
database cluster using initdb, but got the following messages, so what 
should I do?  Thanks in advance.

Best regards

Xiaogang Zhang

The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "xzhang".
This user must also own the server process.

The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.
