Well Jeremy, it would have been helpful and accomodating of you to have jotted
down the relevent info in the reply, rather than just simply saying "I know".
For everyone else, the clue is the override option.
So put this in /etc/fstab:
C:/cygwin/bin /usr/bin ntfs text,override
C:/cygwin/lib /usr/lib ntfs text,override
C:/cygwin / ntfs text,override
This sets everything to textmode. We use dos based editors and so we need this
as everytime we edit it a script file somewhere in the system, it gets written
as a dos mode file.
If you don't need eveything changed, then omit the appropriate lines as
Hope this helps everyone
