Re: how to let cygwin does not mount /bin /usr/bin automaticlly?

I have try the command:
$ mount -f -o binary,user 'f:\cygwin_1.7\usr\bin\' /usr/bin
mount: /usr/bin: Operation not permitted

The -f option does not work well.

I have alse add this line to fstab:
ntfs f:\cygwin_1.7\usr\bin\ /usr/bin binary,user 0 0
It fails, too.
