ntea dilemma


I have cygwin (DLL version: 1.3.11, DLL epoch: 19, Snapshot date:
20020504-18:26:37) installed on a FAT32 (win98) partition, originally installed under
win98. I also installed XP Pro on another partition (NTFS).

To avoid installing cygwin on XP, I created HKLM entries, so I can use
cygwin tools from their FAT partition. Also added several lines to /etc/profile to
check for runnig environment (win98 or XP) and to use appropriate
/etc/passwd an /etc/group files.

The problem: I couldn't set 'ntea' to work properly in this configuration.
'ntsec' is ok, on XP's NTFS, but no chown & co. on FAT32.

Question: Is this because I run cygwin tools from FAT32, or is there any
other configuration issue I didn't figure?
