Installing GNOME programs on Cygwin is no different than other packages,
and running them should be no different then on *NIX (except that the
full desktop doesn't work yet).

1) gconfd-2 should not be started manually; programs that need it will
spawn it automatically.
2) AFAIK on Cygwin, gconfd-2 isn't very good about deleting its lock
file; try the following before starting your GNOME app again:
$ gconftool-2 --shutdown
$ ps -a [make sure gconfd-2 isn't running, else /bin/kill it]
$ rm -fr $TMP/gconfd-*

You need to update gtk2-x11-runtime from the distro to 2.6.10-1.
(There's another solution, but this is the simplest.)

I haven't tried GNOME (or Cygwin FTM) on Win2003, so I have no idea how
it works there.
Please note that I've set the Reply-To: header on this message. Further
questions about Cygwin Ports packages need to be directed to the
cygwin-ports-general list, not here.
