Dear Folks,

I'm running cygwin on Windows XP. I do not have administrator access
to this machine.

When I start cygwin.bat, the / directory is not mounted, so /bin/sh
does not exist, so not much works.  How do I mount this?  Does it
depend on write access to the Windows registry?  My attempts to make
the mount have failed:

mount -s c:\cygdrive /
mount: /: Invalid argument

All suggestions welcome.  There's not much I can use this corporate
desktop for without a working cygwin.
