hi,

still a newbie, here, malheuresement. i have lfe under
erl5.6.5./lib/lfe and am trying to use the lfe shell & haven't figured
it out yet. i'm on winxp+cygwin. i can fire up erl and use
lfe_comp:file() just dandy, but:

bash-3.2$ bin/erl -noshell -noinput -s lfe_boot start
=ERROR REPORT==== 15-Dec-2008::22:33:13 ===
Error in process <0.27.0> with exit value:
{badarg,[{erlang,register,[user,<0.28.0>]},{user,start_port,1}]}

i also, cargo-cult-pattern-matching-esque, tried "bin/erl -noshell
-noinput -pa lib/life/src -s lfe_boot start", and got the same badarg.

might anybody have an idea of what i'm doing wrong / need to do instead?
thank you!
