I actually need to specify a file within the directory. I wasn't aware that
would make a difference. 

For the record, I do have read/write permission in the directory, and the
directory does exist!! I am executing the program within the ~/SuperHirn/make
directory and this is where the file I am specifying also resides. I do not know
for sure if this program evens runs under Cygwin, it was meant for UNIX/Linux,
I'm just trying to get it working.

I tried a few more iterations and nothing wants to work, very frustrating.

Any more suggestions? Install Linux in a dual boot system?? 

Thanks for all your help,
