The /cygdrive/x issues are discussed in the FAQ which you can reach from
http://cygwin.com/. While you are there, you can see how to use the mount
command to create a /tools mount point.
The directory hierarchy managed by cygwin, not bash.
It's all installed using setup.exe. Once you've completed your initial
install, it should be quite simple to maintain.

Subject: /cygdrive/c -- question
I'm interested in knowing how I can get rid off
"/cygdrive/c/blah/blah/blah" when executing 'pwd'? I used to call other
binaries via "/tools/example.exe" from with bash. But, now "/tools"
doesn't exist since /cygdrive is the root of /. I had been using a
previous release of bash (2.04) which was working fine. I installed
this via a very nice self-extracting executable which layed down all of
my neccessary "unix-like" commands. I have recently downloaded the
Cygwin DLL 1.1.8 release via the web and got the "install from internet"
experience. Now BASH refers to itself as 2.05 and prepends /cygdrive/c
to everything. How do I get rid of this? Better yet, is there a nice
"updated" bash version in a self-extracting executable somewhere?
