You have two choices. One is to set the SHELL environment
(setenv "SHELL" "c:/cygwin/bin/bash.exe")
(setenv "COMSPEC" "c:/cygwin/bin/bash.exe")
COMPSPEC makes M-x shell use bash instead of the default MS-DOS prompt.
With this choice M-x S works.
The other choice is to continue to use the default MS-DOS as your shell.
With this choice use M-x S+6-msdos to start S.
ps. NTemacs 21.3 has been available for several weeks.
