   My mount look like
Device         Directory      Type         Flags
    d:\cygwin\usr  /usr           user         binmode
d:\cygwin      /              user         binmode

When I extracted the file xfree86-4.0-xwin.tar.bz2 and
X-servers-v-1.0.tar.bz2, X11 directories where created
in usr/bin and usr/lib and also created usr/X11R6.
Since you suggested that all X related file have to be
in /usr/X11R6, I copied all files from /usr/bin/X11
and /usr/lib/X11 to /usr/X11R6. Still I am running
into trouble. when at MS Dos prompt, I say startxwin
it gives me 

The XWin.exe file is linked to missing export

If I say startdx I get RGB_DB error and font fixed
error. In the reply to my mail you said that X server
is not able to see /usr/X11R6/lib/X11, but the RGB_DB
error message box says /usr/lib/X11. In my case I do
have both. Also while extracting the tar.bz2 files
"cygwin1.dll" is copied into /usr/X11R6/bin. I already
have cygwin1.dll in my usr/bin(and this one is latest
by date). So which one has to be renamed (as suggested
in one of your suggestions to mailing list)

Thanks for your help
