[ hey i have a question about the /tmp]

Make a tmp directory whereever your root directory is located.

sh -c "mkdir /tmp" may do the trick.

Subject: [postmaster@sourceware] hey i have a question about the /tmp

Help! I haven't created /tmp and tools are behaving strangely!

Many Unix tools (bash, byacc, etc.) expect that /tmp always exists. This is
not guaranteed in Win32 land. You should create /tmp or "mount" the
directory of your choice to /tmp to avoid this problem. 

how do i mount the directory for windows 95

sorry for taking up your time
and thank you
