But your subject wasn't a question - "Why can't I..." is a
question, while "Why I can't.." is the beginning of an
explanation (once you have discovered why you cannot).

Look at http://cygwin.com/problems.html
You have given almost no information. If you are
a newcomer to bash and Unix, then maybe you haven't
realised that backslash is an escape character and must
be doubled in bash commands (as in C strings). Or maybe
you have problems with your character set and keyboard
mapping. We can only guess!
