Any suggestions as to why I can not initialize the database (see error
below) are greatly appreciated.
I am new to PostgreSQL. I am using W2K, Cygwin, and within Cygwin
$ initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/data
The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "omeding".
This user must also own the server process.
The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.
