For home use/development, run either Linux or FreeBSD in another partition on
your Win9x machine.  Or, even use one of the 'WinLinux' style distributions
that cooexist with Windows very well.  You'll (and PostgreSQL will) be much
happier with a unix-like environment (which Cygwin duplicates anyway for the
Win32 PostgreSQL server) for running the PostgreSQL server.  Get VMWare and run
Win9x in a window on your Linux partition to test  Win9x apps if you must run

Or, port Cygwin to Win9x so that PostgreSQL can run on Win9x.

However, the point is taken -- MySQL does Win9x.  We don't.
