command initdb not found

マニーシュ シャルマ
Hi ,
I have downloaded and installed cygwin as stated in
FAQ_CYGWIN for postgresql
I have followed the steps below
 
1.  Download and run the Cygwin installer.  Visit http://cygwin.com/ and
    click on the "Install Cygwin now' link.  This will prompt you
    to download a "setup.exe".  Save this file somewhere on your
    system and then execute it.
 
2.  Proceed through the Cygwin install wizard.  Choose 'Install from
    Internet', specify a Local Package Directory and choose a mirror
    site that's close to you.  Answer the other installer questions
    appropriately for your configuration.
 
    When you come to the point of choosing which packages to install,
    expand the 'Database' section and click 'Skip' next to PostgreSQL
    to change it to the latest version of PostgreSQL available for
    Cygwin.
 
3.  Once the download and install process is complete, open a Cygwin
    shell and do the following for a basic installation:
 
    3a.  Start cygserver for shared memory support.  To do this,
         enter the command "/usr/sbin/cygserver &".  This program
         needs to be running anytime you start the PostgreSQL server
         (postmaster) or initialize a database (initdb).
 
Result:
$ /usr/sbin/cygserver &
[1] 1320
 
 3b.  Use the initdb command to create a new database cluster.  An
         example command would be:
 
            initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/data -W -E SHIFT_JIS
BUT After passing initdb command the cywin is prompting a error
 
Result:
$ initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/data -W -E SHIFT_JIS
bash: initdb: command not found
 
What could be the possible error?
 
Please help me install Postgresql on Windows 2000 (JP Version) SP4.
 
Thanks in advance

export cygwin=server

Easier is to use the rc init script
/etc/init.d/postgresql
