I downloaded and installed the latest cygwin today on my computer.  I 
followed all defaults during installation (in c:\cygwin).  After that, I 
started a cygwin bash shell but found that it did not start in the 
/home/$USER directory ($USER means the user name I use to log onto my 
computer).  The actual directory is /sygdrive/c, which means the c: drive 
on my computer.  What went wrong in my installation and can anyone help me?
