Cygwin on Windows Server 2003 64 bit

Has anyone successfully run cygwin on Windows Server 2003 64 bit? I have 
installed cygwin 1.3.22-1 without a problem, but when I run the bash shell, 
I get a fork error:

C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe: *** fork: can't reserve memory for stack 0xF0000 - 
000, Win32 error 0
      6 [main] bash 3156 sync_with_child: child 3160(0x6A4) died before 
zation with status code 0x1
    367 [main] bash 3156 sync_with_child: *** child state waiting for 
bash: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable

I have tried *all* of the compatibility options for bash.exe (ie. XP, down 
to 95), but this has not prevented the error. I am running under the 
server's Administrator id, so security should not be an issue.

The machine is an Intel Itanium server: four processor (64 bit), 4 gb 

Any assistance would be appreciated.
