RE: Problem with a cygwin App - Broken on a pristine system until I install cygwin, cygwin1.dll doesn't seem to be enough

$ mount -m >mounts.bat
# on the dev. machine

# Assuming mount.exe and mounts.bat from cygwin in PATH
C:\> mounts.bat 
# on the user machine

May be a good idea to
- minimize mounts.bat
- NOT use "-s" mount flag.
  (-s == for all users, privilege problems unless running as admin)
- adjust mounts.bat for drive letters on the user machine.
  (hmm... is there a "sed" for MSDOS? Installation problem.)
