Dude, you are going to get flammed big time.

But, to help you out, here is a previous message
that I saved because I knew it would come up again,
and because I thought that I might use cygwin...

*************** previous author  *********************
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
