Oh! You never said anything about cmd.exe. Naturally cygwin links only
work in a cygwin shell. bash, ash, zsh, tcsh, ... pick your poison.

Well, using cygwin.bat would have solved that for you too. (And would
have given you a nice bash prompt.)

Looks really funny, you lost your backslashes in the mail ;)

The X-problem seems to be that the X-server is not running. Try using
startxwin.bat. (This one actually works if you "click" on it.) *shudder*
