First, you should clarify what pvm is.  I'm assuming you mean 
<>, though I can't be sure.

AFAICS, the main problem is just that PVM_ROOT is not defined.  If that's the
case, just define it in the system variables (not the user's) in the Windows
control panel.

Assuming you mean environment variables, then see my response above.

>Oh!!! I´m using cygwin, pvm 3.4.3, windowsXp.......

This isn't enough information.  You should read through the "Problem reports"
link below.  This describes the proper "boot-strap" information that should 
accompany all problem reports to this list.
