Normally, people start cygwin using cygwin.bat (or an icon on their  
desktop that does the same).  This sets up some useful stuff.

 From the picture in your previous post, you just started a shell  
(bash.exe) inside a command window.  In other words, there no  
guarantee that any useful environment was set up.

The commands that see working are builtin shell commands.  Things like  
ls are not (they are separate executables) and will need a proper path  
to find.
