I tested ssh-host-config on 98 and didn't get any error messages.  The
script contains logic to detect if running under 98 and behaive
correctly.  If you do get an error, that is a bug.  Please report the
full output of the script as well as uname -a if it in fact is trying to
install a service under 98.  (Although it does add 22/tcp to
\windows\services, the /etc/services-like file, but this is a different
meaning of 'services' entirely.)

The easiest way is probably just to add a shortcut to sshd.exe to the
Startup folder.  You can try this though:

regtool set '\HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\sshd'
`cygpath -w /usr/sbin/sshd`
