This just says whether the mount points created by setup will be for everyone
or just the user installing it. See "mount --help" and the "-u" and "-s"
flags and/or "man mount".

Actually, that shouldn't be necessary. If the setup worked properly and
the user is in /etc/passwd with the proper group in /etc/group, any user
that starts cygwin.bat should be able to use Cygwin, assuming you chose
"All Users" for the question you asked above.
