mounting problem

last week I had the problem that xfig was looking for some files in the
/usr/..something... directory.

Actually xfig was looking in the c:/usr/... -directory which did not exist.

This morning I found out that I have to use

mount e/cygnus/cygwin-b20/usr /usr to make it running (for a very short
time). While xfig was running (and the directory was mounted) my computer
crashed and I had to reboot it. Since this moment, whenever I try to mount,
I get the message: 

mount failed: Device or resource busy

I think this has to do with my reboot. Can anybody tell me how I can get
out of this trouble?
During a very short adventure with Linux about 2 years ago, I remember that
there has to be a physical directory to mount to, so there is an (empty)
c:/usr on my harddisk.


This is the batch-file starting my bash:
set display=localhost:0.0
set HOME=e:/cygnus/cygwin-b20/
mount e:/cygnus/cygwin-b20/usr /usr
