Yes, those are not the correct commands. You need to tell it both
the win32 path and the posix path:
mount -s c:\\ /c
Assuming you're using the bash shell, you need to escape the first
'\' in the path.
But normally, if you cygdrive is /, you should have this already. Again,
check out the Problems report page, and try posting a new question, with
all the necessary info.
