I am running cygwin/X under XP/Pro power user
not administrator and I have no problems (with cygwin/X, i.e.).
However, I am connoisseur of all but guru of none.

Subject: running CygwinX with a limited user account

To the Gurus of CygwinX,
I've noticed that in order to run CygwinX on separate accounts on the same 
machine, all users must have "computer administrator" privileges under the 
Windows XP Professional operating system.  Is there any work around to 
allow users with "limited" privileges (such as my daughter) to access 
CygwinX?  Cygwin does not seem to have this problem.  Thanks for a great 
product and hopefully a response to this question.
