Ah! That's better. I got it up this morning.
Several questions to parade my ignorance --
1) Are there any of the spinning or bouncing ball variety of graphic
demos around. Every X package I've seen seems to include one?
2) Issuing "env" to the XTerm indicates that some or all of
the Cygwin mounts are visible, e.g. $TEMP="/local-disk/d/Temp"
Where does cygwin (cygwin1.dll) come into this? I understand
that the X-Server for Win98 is not integrated with cygwin.
3) XTerm is obviously running an X-Nix shell, my "/bin" is at
"C:/@/bin" and would not be visible without the cygwin mounts.
Or is there a shell built into XTerm?
