Hi there,

I just got a PC runnign Windows NT4.0. Since Iam a Unix person I
downloaded Cygnus
and I am trying to install it.

I followed the instructions but when I come to:

mkpasswd > /etc/passwd
mkgroup > /etc/group

I get empty files.

when I run just mkpasswd I get a "usage" message":

usage: mkpasswd [options] [domain]

etc ....

if I run mkpasswd -d I get:
Cannot get PDC, code = 2453

Under NT I have an administrator user and myself..

Thanks you for any help ...
