OK, I did a minimal install on a machine without Cygwin, my program then
I then used regedit to delete the two sets of "cygnus solutions" registry
keys, and my program now no longer runs (properly).
so, maybe all I need to do is set the right registry keys.
Could someone "in the know" explain to me how to use mount to do that?
