How do I set the default path?

Thu Dec 4 19:42:00 GMT 2008

I am new to cygwin. I am running cygwin on XP. 

When I start cygwin, I am put into the /usr/bin directory. I can not run
anything, even ls, without putting a ./ in front of it. 

I am using this XP box at work. I am able to directly change my windows

Is there a way for me to setup cygwin so that I can run commands in the
/usr/bin directory, with the ./ ?
