I found no informations on cygwin.com, but google gives me an "HOWTO
Configure inetd to run under Cygwin for Windows 2000 or XP Pro" :

It works for me now (eg login as root) :-)


except this :-(

$ dpkg -i dpkg_1.9.18_w32.deb
dpkg: `ldconfig' not found on PATH.
dpkg: `update-rc.d' not found on PATH.
dpkg: 2 expected program(s) not found on PATH.
NB: root's PATH should usually contain /usr/local/sbin, /usr/sbin and /sbin.
