Presumably this is a typo transcribing to your email message?
passwd files looks good now, moved passwd file and re-ran
That you didn't really need, though it probably did no harm. Can you
check if SYSTEM is in '/etc/group' and '/etc/passwd' though still?
Still when I 'net start sshd' I still receive the same error, also
when I try to re-instantiate the service in windows..
Did you run ssh-host-config (and ssh-user-config) as specified by
'/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/openssh.README'? If so, do you have 'cyg_server'
in your '/etc/passwd' file? This really should be the user the service
runs under on 2003 x64.
