I know this is beating a dead Horse but  I had some spare time on my hands
so I figured
I would set all the Cygnus Questions to rest, ** Hopefully ** for good    ..
This is a screen
copy of everything that transpired after installing Cygnus 20.1 on Win98 and
Circle30bpl15 to C:\circle30bpl15 directory , then running and killing
running server.
Open Cygnus command prompt and try the following:

BASH.EXE-2.02$ mkdir /bin
BASH.EXE-2.02$ mkdir /tmp
BASH.EXE-2.02$ mount c:\\tmp /tmp
BASH.EXE-2.02$ mount c:\\bin /bin
BASH.EXE-2.02$ mount

\\.\tape1:        /dev/st1            native      text!=binary
\\.\tape0:        /dev/st0            native      text!=binary
\\.\b:               /dev/fd1            native      text!=binary
\\.\a:               /dev/fd0            native      text!=binary
c:\bin             /bin                   native      text!=binary
C:                  /                        native      text!=binary
