prob a win xp problem, would be solved with a win xp repair.
my mistake i was only trying to start it with things like net start

Best tihng to do is just to run it. 
That works.  I don`t need to install it as a service. Installing it as
a service and starting it, that was where the problem was.
Some article on the net on the LRP site, about running sshd, only
mentioned the "net start sshd" or "cygrunsrv -S sshd" method to start
