- Subject: cygwin not mount / when start bash
I'm running cygwin on Windows XP. I do not have administrator access
to this machine.
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.

I disclaim, therefore I am.
