startxwin.bat failing

Hi:

I'm trying to run startxwin.bat on a Windows XP system. When I do, the 
Cygwin/X Server starts however when the terminal window comes up, I get the 
two following error messages:

xterm: Can't execvp /usr/bin/bash: No such file or directory
xterm: Could not exec /bin/sh: No such file or directory.

These look like things you would typically find on a unix box so it's not 
suprising to get these errors. However, xterm runs for others in my office on 
windows, but they don't know how it works or what to do to get around this.

Any thoughts?

Jon
