Thanks Larry, that really cleared up a lot for me. Sorry for the dumb
questions, I'm still learning my way around windows, and some of the
concepts are very foreign to me. I decided to reinstall cygwin, since I
hadn't put any work into that install yet. I had one question regarding your
last message, though.

OK then, so cygrunserv would be to run something in a manner similar to the
services that I see in 'msconfig', whereas '/usr/bin/run' would just allow
me to run cygwin applications from the windows "Run" dialog without having
to run the Cygwin Bash shell. Is this correct, or did I miss something?
Thanks again for your help,
