First create the system mounts as above, then remove your user
then leave bash and rename your temp to cygwin and you are thru.
You don't need to change your $PATH.
For people who want to have user mount points instead:
cd to /bin and do all changes by prefixing the commands with "./":
./mount -f -b e:/cygwin /
./mount -f -b e:/cygwin/bin /usr/bin
./mount -f -b e:/cygwin/lib /usr/lib
then leave bash and rename your temp to cygwin.
