Neil,

I have sshd running under Vista Home Premium.  You can use one of two ways:

1) Run the bash shell as Administrator.  Do this by right clicking the 
Cygwin icon and selecting the "Run as Administrator" menu item.  Then, run 
the ssh-host-config script.

2) The other way involves turning off User Access Control, rebooting, 
running ssh-host-config, turning on UAC, rebooting.  This is what I 
originally ended up doing.  My recommendation is skipping the last two steps 
here... :-)

HTH,

Mark
