Please double check that cygserver is actually running. It might fail to run.
That could be due to various permission errors.
Also, please double-check that you CYGWIN environment variable has been set to include the word "server", and that it's export if you do this in bash.
Mike G, the instructions on the website are no longer out of date! I just verified. They're updated as of 20-07-2004.

Subject: [CYGWIN] PostgreSQL in Windows2000 PRO
I am trying to install PostGres in my machine with OS windows 2000 PRO as instructions in the site http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faqs/text/FAQ_MSWIN , but I am not having success.
I follow the instructions but when I am not able to init the db ( please see below ) .
