You know what was cool.. copy CMD.EXE to D:\Cygwin\bin and modify
/etc/passwd so that my shell is /bin/cmd

When I login via SSH I get the NT CLI :)

Bash is a UNIX shell.  '\' is a quoting character in bash.

So, your options are:

1) Don't run the command from bash.

2) Use a '/':

./mount d:/cygwin /

3) Double the backslashes:

./mount d:\\cygwin /

4) Quote the first argument:

./mount 'd:\cygwin' /
