Problem with NT Server (newbie)

The reason the workstation installation has a //d in front of the path names
is because you have NT installed on your D: partition.  On the server machine,
you have it installed on C:.  Cygwin, by default, mounts C: as /.  All other
partitions are referenced, by default, using (the now deprecated) //<drive
letter> notation.  You'll need the "mount" utility to clearly see the
default partition mounts/mappings.
