If you don't specify a dos drive, \cygwin\bin will be relative to the
curent dos disk drive.
so if you are in d:, \cygwin\bin\ls.exe exists.
after that you do a 'cd /c'. current dos drive becomes c:.
c:\cygwin\bin\ls.exe doesn't exist and you get 'not found'.
answer to your P.S.:
P.S. I am not using the normal installation settings where /cygwin is
mounted as / since I have a lot of other directories at the top of my D
drive that I want to access from within cygwin
all drives can be accessed by 'cd /cygdrive/x' when x is the letter of
the dos drive. so the following mountpoints is incorrect:
C: on /c type system (binmode)
c: on /cygdrive/c type system (binmode)
does that answer all your questions ?
