I do know about the mounts and how they work. Everyone who has
(thankfully) replied or attempted to assist me has assumed that
I actually *have* the .bash_profile.... etc. files, the fact is I *don't*,
ie. thats why I think that this error message is unreasonable. It should
be pointed out that binary mounts are required to be able to use the
cygwinb19+ dll's.  As I have hardly configured my win98 gnu environment,
I shouldn't be given meaningless error messages like this when I haven't
even got any .bash* files!!!
