Re: error initdb-failed

Hello Carlo,

 Yes, we look at the documentation but it did not give certain.  

The problems to install postgresql in win98 had been many, then in the project
we decide here to develop using winXP.  

I did not obtain to decide the problem with the Cygwin and win98, we cannot wait

 I am thankful for the attention, especially of the Carlo. 
 I am thankful.  

Any doubt return.
