I'm running cygwin on Windows XP. I do not have administrator access

When I start cygwin.bat, the / directory is not mounted, so /bin/sh
does not exist, so not much works. How do I mount this? Does it
depend on write access to the Windows registry? My attempts to make
the mount have failed:
mount -s c:\cygdrive /
mount: /: Invalid argument
All suggestions welcome. There's not much I can use this corporate
desktop for without a working cygwin.
When you installed, did you pick "All Users" or "Just Me"? Also, please
read and follow the problem reporting guidelines outlined at this link:
