I haven't played with Cygwin for years [*], but isn't there some business
about mounting drives to make them visible to the shell?  

[*] and good riddance. Not that the Cygwin crowd haven't made an
incredible effort - it's just that the kludges necessary to emulate a
Unix environment under Windows get to you after a while. Much
admiration for Brian's and Guido's ability to stay on top of this for
so long.
