I am going to respond to both you (John) and Pavel here.  I can run rxvt 

from both a cmd shell (yes, I am using Win2K) and from a bash prompt.  I do 

not get any error messages here.  The only place I have a problem is 
when I modify my cygwin.bat file.

I don't think that this is a problem with finding the cygwin1.dll since 
that throws up a dialog box, telling me that that is the problem.  But, 
doing a search on my C drive for cygwin1.dll I find it only in c:\cygwin\bin

Here is my current cygwin.bat

C:\cygwin>type cygwin.bat
@echo off

chdir \cygwin\bin

rem bash --login -i
  rxvt -sr -sl 2500 -sb -e bash --login -i

There was a start before the rxvt command, but I removed it to see if I 
could get any more debug info.  I could not.
