Cygwin emulates linux so you shouldn't be using MS-DOS path names.  If
you want to cd to the root drive of c: use "cd /cygdrive/c".

I am getting the feeling that you need a concentrated session of
documentation reading.  Please go back to the cygwin web site and click
on the "Documentation" link on the left hand side of the window.  Basic
questions like this should be amply covered there.
