Hey guys,

Total newbie here in relation to not only cygwin & cygwin/X but also to
UNIX... I'm a total windows slave.

Anyway I've been given the delightful task of trying to configure cygwin and
cygwin/X server for use on our systems.  But I've run into a wall.  Well
actually quite a few really but I'll get to the point of the first one...

How do I enable cygwin/X server as a service on Windows 2k & XP?  I've read
the help files and FAQ but although it said to use the cygserver-config
script I'm at a lost as to how to do that.

All I need for the moment is the ability to start the server first.  The
rest I'll ask about later (if people are kind)
