Harold, others:

I don't like coming out of lurk mode just to beat a
dead horse but here are my test results on the latest
Win9x build.  Wish I had some better news.

No, test does not work for me, error messages similar
to others posted recently. :-(

I am using Toshiba 335CDT w/96M RAM.  C&T 65555 video
chipset with 2M RAM.  Running Win98SE and latest
Cygwin (clean install from RH/Cygnus FTP).  US English

I experimented with 24 bit, 16 bit, 8 bit color using
640x480 res and 800x600 res in Win98SE

I tried starting XWin with 100X100, 128X128, 320X240,
640X480 resolution with 24, 16, 8, 4, and 1 bit

I tried many combinations of the above seeking some
lowest common denominator mode that would work with no
success (such as 640x480x8 in Win98SE and starting
XWin with 128X128x8 mode).

Basically, I got the same error messages as everyone
else similar to

XWin window:

Owner of /tmp/.X11-unix should be set to root
Desired pwin->width = 00000080
Desired pwin->height = 00000080
Desired pwin->paddedWidth = 00000080
Desired pwin->bitsPerPixel = 00000008

Fatal server error:
Couldn't add screen 0
