In your start-menu you should have a Cygwin entry that allows you to start cygwin / a bash shell. (I'm not sure what the exact title is of the start-menu entry).
Start this, and all cygwin commands should be available.
They are located in c:\cygwin\bin;c:\cygwin\usr\bin and some other locations inside c:\cygwin. (Or different drive, if you installed differently.) Normally they aren't in your PATH, until you start the bash shell.
Hope this helps,

Subject: [CYGWIN] command question
I've installed the Cygwin software in order to run the PostgreSQL database
on Windows XP, but I can´t find the "initdb" and others Cygwin commands.
I´ve installed the Cygutils software too.
Any help would be appreciated.
