\command.com would be looking for command.com in the root directory of
the current device. What do you have the shell statement saying? You
must be specific with the device!! shell=c:\command.com.

You will need to modify the cygnus.bat file and change the CYGROOT and
CYGFS to point to your installation.
To fix the most serious problems:
Please, _READ_ the IMPORTANT UPGRADE NOTICE at the end of this note.
