>Looks fine. You can just paste all 4 of the above mount lines into

mounts, which will be seen by all users.
Ok, I'll try to do this.
>The uid is hard-coded into the program source, at least in the case of
inetutils and procmail... You can change the privileges of other
accounts to approach those of LocalSystem, but *this is not
It's true, however...
>You're much better off figuring out what xdm considers "root" (maybe
it just needs to run as a service or something). Again, the
cygwin-xfree list is the place to go for that. I suggest you post a new
message there with "xdm" in its subject (e.g., 'xdm says "Only root
wants to run xdm"' or something similar).
>Umm, I actually asked about the "su" command, rather than the system
version... In the future, try "which su" and "su --version" in response
to such a question (no need to do that now, as I've found that there's
an - apparently non-working - su.exe packaged in the latest "sh-utils"
However the response is
"$ su --version
su (sh-utils) 2.0.15
So it's 2.0.15 version, right?
