Make sure that you mount the root directory on each machine.  Assuming you have
Cygwin located on \\foo\cygwin and you have \\foo\cygwin mapped to drive z you
would then need to `z:\bin\mount -s z:/ /'.  Other mounts you may wish to do
  z:\bin\mount -s z:/bin /usr/bin
  z:\bin\mount -s z:/lib /usr/lib
