Hi.  I've got a newbie question about changing default directories:  I've
just installed Cygwin b20.1 on NT workstation 4.0, and installed it on my d:
drive.  When I ran cygwin and ran mkdir -p /tmp, it seems to have created
the tmp directory on my c: drive, while I would like it on d: with the rest
of cygwin.  Looking through the docs, I can't seem to find a solution for
this.  Can I change this via the HOME environment variable, or is it a
.bashrc (or other) setting (and what would that setting be)?  Sorry if this
is somewhere in the docs and I missed it...
