  i have windows xp pro. i downloaded & installed cygwin and xfree86 as per the step by step given in the webpage. when i try to open startxwin.bat from windows explorer, i get error messages like, cannot find xwin,xterm,twm.. i tried searching for the corresponding .exe files through windows search, but couldn't find them. a part of cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out gives the following details:

Found: D:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe
Found: D:\cygwin\bin\cat.exe
Not Found: cpp (good!)
Found: D:\cygwin\bin\find.exe
Not Found: gcc
Not Found: gdb
Not Found: ld

Not Found: make
