problems creating apache service

Hello,

I am using cygwin 1.3.17 on Windows 2000 (SP3) and cygwin apache 1.3.24.
I read the Apache/Cygwin page, http://httpd.apache.org/docs/cygwin.html,
to figure how to run apache as a service. I used this command line:

cygrunsrv -I apache -p /usr/sbin/httpd.exe

The service is created just fine but then, under the apache service
properties, the "Path to Executable" contains
"C:\cygwin\bin\cygrunsrv.exe". So naturally, when I click "Start",
Apache doesn't start and I get an error message saying that the apache
service couldn't be started.

What gives here? The Path to Executable should be /usr/sbin/httpd.exe,
right?

Thanks,

Paul
