Login as a different user?

Is there a way to login as a different user (under cygwin for a shell) for a
win2k machine running the latest everything for cygwin? I am curious of this
for multiple reasons. I am mainly wondering so that I can have multiple
completely independent profiles in pine.

I realize ahead of time this could be a rather dumb question, but I have
tried the login command such as I can do on regular Unix machines and that
has never accepted any input of any types.

When I try to type login with a different username at my normal console
window it displays the message "Not a login shell." My normal shell simply
consists of Start Menu | Run | "tcsh"

I hope someone is able to help me with this predicament.
