completely fresh reinstall of cygwin?

I originally installed cygwin on a network drive (p:\cygwin).

Due to various intermittent network problems I wanted to move the
install it to my local c:\ (e.g. c:\cygwin) so that it is no longer
network dependent.

Unfortunately when I tried to put a new install into c:\cygwin, the
/usr/bin and /usr/lib directories still point to my p:\cygwin\

I tried deleting the registry keys HKEY_CURRENT_USER and
HKEY_CURRENT_MACHINE  'Software/Cygnus Solutions' and reinstalling,
but mount still the directories pointing to p:\cygwin\

How can I get a fresh, independent install on my local c:\ ?
