Perhaps we're having a terminology problem here.
Are you typing (literally) the string "cd c:\" as the entire input to
bash? If so, you need to be aware that all Unix-y shells do *escape
processing* using "\", so you have to double them up if you want to send
them in literally.
bash-3.00$ cd c:\\
Surprise, it works.
Also, you realize that you can use *FORWARD SLASHES* on Windows, don't
you? It's completely supported at the Win32 API level, so you can even
bash-3.00$ cd c:/
Does this solve your problem?
