Forgot to reboot?
Why would that be necessary on Win 2K? I did not find that simply
installing the "inetd" service required a reboot on my Win 2K or
another Win XP machine to make it function correctly.
Because, assuming you are logged in and just added Cygwin's bin
directory to your system wide PATH environment variable it would not
become effective until you reboot. Why? Because the system environment
space is only built when you boot and because services are started from
the system environement, the environment in effect *before* you log in.
Why did it work for you? Probably because you already had Cygwin's bin
in your systemwide PATH environment *before* you logged in and installed
inetd as a service.
