x apps and windows XP cmd

This question is a mixed bag of both cygwin xterm knowldge and Windows XP

I have Xwin started using -multiwindow

I can now launch xterm -display from the windows xp start->run

However in addition to the newly created xterm, there's also a new windows
cmd console hanging around.

I've tried various things including writing a windows batch file that uses
START /B xterm -display

Is there any possible way to get rid of the extra cmd console?

I suppose the xterm has to somehow detach itself from the cmd console or
something of that nature.
