Re: ntsec with W2K workgroup

Actually I have used setup.exe to install cygwin. In the /bin directory
all the files don't have any permission bit set when I use ntsec. And
the files have owner/group as administ/None. Without ntsec the files
owner/group are venkates/Power Us.

Most of the files I could execute in that directory but some
applications such as man complain about troff not found etc. When i
remove ntsec I don't have any problem. Should I set ntsec env variable
before using setup.exe. In my /etc/passwd and etc/group entries have 
None as group for all users. I tried changing them (like 547)also.

Please suggest setting up passwd/group files in win2k workgroups if that 
is the cause.
