How do I start inetd as SYSTEM account?

I've been starting inetd by hand as "inetd -d" to get
ftp/telnet/rlogin/rsh to work. When I try to
rlogin/telnet/ftp in from another machine, I get to the
"password:" prompt, but then it never accepts my password.
I searched the old cygwin mail list archives, and it looks
like perhaps my problem is that inetd needs to be running as
UID 18 (the SYSTEM account). But, I don't know how to make
that happen. Could somebody give me a clue? In case it's
important, I'm running Windows NT on a P-III, and the system
control panel says "Microsoft Windows NT 4.00.1381, IE 5
5.50.4522.1800". Thank you very much.
