I apologize for my ignorance if I didn't understand it well, since I'm
just a casual user of X.
As suggested, either :0 or -screen should be used to run XWin. I tried
running XWin with :0 only as argument, but it also exited with
"arithmetic exception" error. I also tried with :1, :2 and :3, and none
of them work. Again, trial-and-error is my only known way of getting
things to work since I don't have in depth knowledge about X.
Below is the message I got if I use :0 argument only for XWin
$ XWin :0

Checking which OS you're running...
uname reports 'CYGWIN_NT-5.0' version '1.3.2(0.39/3/2)', architecture 'i686'.

and Cygwin/XFree86 4.1.0 from ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/
P.S. Harold, thanks for updating the startup-scripts.tgz right away.
If without your User's Guide and startup-scripts.tgz, I probably would
still be struggling with Cygwin/XFree86 installation. Thanks.
