Thanks a lot now I know what is the problem, but I don't know how to
resolve it. I know how to do it in linux, but not in cygwin (arrgh! :)

In linux you just had to link /etc/localtime to
/ush/share/zoneinfo/wherever_you_are and that's it, but in cygwin there's
no /usr/share/zoneinfo folder. I looked manpages but I found nothing.

Another question: how can I add inetd the inetd service to my winbox list
of services? and how can I get my crond running? 

If there's documentation that you know over the net just redirect me to
the page so I can stop bothering! ;)
