inetd -- service wont start at boottime on Win XP (add me to the pile)

I, too, could not make this work (in my case to start SSHD as a service),
even after an exhaustive search of this list archive.  What I ended up with
was using the "Scheduled Tasks" control panel to schedule a "cygrunsrv"
task.  This task is scheduled to run "At system startup" and uses the
command

C:\cygwin\bin\cygrunsrv.exe -S sshd

This apparently delays startup sufficiently that all of the necessary
resources are available.  I've heard a rumor (which I've not be able to
substantiate but does fit my experience) that the portion of the OS that
allows services to be started "dependent on Tcpip" has been "underdeveloped"
(see http://www.queso.com/autoFrontier.htm).

Like many others, I can't seem to get inetd started at boottime as a
service.  Without much effort I can get it to setup as a service set to
'automatic,' but it wont start on its own.  After I boot and login I
have to start it manually.  

System is WinXP with latest Cygwin

I've tried all the ideas I've seen from
	inetutils-1.3.2.README, e.g., 
		--install-as-service
		cygwin1.dll in path
	this mailing list, e.g., 
		Mark Himsley's add a dependency idea
         http://sources.redhat.com/ml/cygwin/2001-11/msg01905.html
         Shawn Behrens' add a Description idea
         http://sources.redhat.com/ml/cygwin/2001-11/msg01891.html

	erdelynet.com 


So far, nothing seems to work :(


Here are my associated log entries from the "System" log (the error
messages
about inetd failing to start) and the the 'Application' log, showing me
successfully starting it by hand.

It turns out that I can't get sshd to boot-start either, probably for
the same unknown reasons.  That's also fine as a hand started service
invoked with cygrunsrv.

Ideas anyone?

Thanks,
Andrew
