->cfengine and cygwin
My test-system is a linux 7.3 OS. Now another task is to test cfengine on
NT. I read in your documentation that
you need an unix emulation like Cygwin or UWIN. So I installed Cygwin and
compiled cfengine successfully.
- Now point number one is that the process list only contains processes of
Cygwin (only bash and ps itself).
 Do you know if Cygwins ps is able to get NT's processes; so that's they
can be checked by cfengine?
- I tried required:

  /cygdrive/c freespace=100mb
  /cygdrive/d freespace=100mb

results in:
cfengine:*: Can't stat /cygdrive/c/pagefile.sys in required/disk
cfengine:*: lstat: Permission denied

I'm logged in as Administrator and there doesn't seem to exist a root user
under cygwin! (?)
Do you have an idea what I do wrong?

Nothing. The problem is that Administrator on NT does not have full rights as does root under Unix. Pagefile.sys is locked by the OS, even the Administrator may not change it on a running system. And sometimes Windows is too restrictive...
