Assuming that the mounts are the same, that should be enough to run
most applications (fileutils, etc.). I use a `lite' Cygwin
installation on our customer's machines, mostly to make my job easier,
but occasionally to script something for a customer. The customer's
machines are usually very close to identical from one installation
to another, which helps a lot. The only issue I've had is that our
latest machines are based on WinXP Embedded, which is on a read-only
flash card, so that registry modifications are not persistent across
reboots. I haven't put my 'lite' Cygwin installation on any such
machine yet, nor have I played around with one yet, but I suppose
I'll have to run the mount script from any scripts I may write on
such machines (shouldn't present a problem).
