RE: For the adventurous: cygwin/latest/newsetup

All I get is "umount: Invalid argument"
when trying "umount --remove-all-mounts".  umount --help, /?, etc. reveals
no info to ensure I am doing a valid option.  Anything on that?  Where is
help info on the commands?

I found the entry in the registry and deleted the bad one.  Rerunning setup
results in the same issues as before.

What are the pre-reqs to install this?  Does it need to be installed in any
special directory hierarchy?

This is a very strange mount table.  If setup.exe did this then there's
a bug there somewhere.  Try doing the following:

umount --remove-all-mounts
mount -f -b c:/ /

If that "\" mount comes back then there is a problem in setup.exe.
