The password should be the actual password of the root account on the Windows computer. The quotes around the password are only necessary if it contains special characters.

It looks like your contains Windows line breaks. You'll see the 'unexpected token {\r' error when this is the case. This will happen in some circumstances if you save it under Windows. The file must only contain Unix line breaks in order to work. Run this command on the Windows computer in the Cygwin shell then try to run the script again:
dos2unix /home/root/

I set the file as an executable then proceed to run the command
/home/root/ '<PASSWORD>'. Everything goes smooth
until the last step in which I receive a Win32 1069 logon failure. I
wasn't sure if <PASSWORD> was suppose to be the actual root password I
use to logon to my Windows XP virtual machine or a new password
specifically for I read around on a couple of
forms that the password to run sshd should be at least 5 - 8 characters
and alphanumeric. If this is so than my Windows XP root password does
not meet that criteria.

Also, when I try to simply run the command again i get this error message;

/home/root/ line 46: syntax error near unexpected
token ' {\r' '
'home/root/ line 46: 'function set_config {

Has anyone encountered this problem before? Your input is greatly
