I can't find the config file I need to modify for my install of Xwin via Cygwin.

Currently when X loads it fires off and Xterm window. Essentially all I want to do is comment out/delete this line so I have a server running in the background and I can use some shotcuts I have set up/terminal commands as needed for the apps.

No idea, but the best place for Cygwin/X questions is the cygwin-xfree mailing list. – ak2 Jul 1 '10 at 5:22
Check out andLinux for what I think is a much improved and less painful Cygwin. – user31752 Aug 16 '10 at 3:40
