Thank for pointing to that.  I found the code, it is for MSVC and looks
quite complicated.  Anyway with that VXD I can just mount an ext2 partition
say as Z: and just access the files on it in a normal way, so I no longer
need to read ext2 partitian manually at low level.

Nevertheless, the problem of accessing physical drives under cygwin remains
open:-(((   ANd I whould much like to now, if there is a solution to that.
