How can I get all permissions when I login to cygwin

Sat Apr 27 14:13:00 GMT 2002

First, thank you for your reply.

I using cygwin.bat file to login to the cygwin, the contents of the file 
are in below:

	@echo off

	chdir f:\cygwin\bin

	bash --login -i

When I entered into the system, the shell prompt displayed as 
"Administrator@HOSTNAME...", then I tried to change the file's 
permissions, but I could not do it(I could only control the -w 
permission of the file and only of my own account, but the file owner is 
me!). Then I rewrite "bash --login -i" to "bash", so I could enter the 
system first(displayed "bash-2.05a$...) ,and then used the user account 
in my win2000 system to login to the system, but the shell said "login 
incorrectly". Now I want to know how can I use the 2nd method mentioned 
above to login to the system and get all permissions.

Thank you!

I am a chinese boy, so my english is poor, if words above puzzled you, I 
am sorry.
