You should think *very* carefully before doing this, but if you are
*really* sure you want to, you can use the mount command to remount /usr
from c:\cygwin\usr to c:\usr
$ mount c:\usr /usr
$ mount -b c:\usr /usr
will do this for you.
I should re-iterate, though, that this is probably a *bad* idea.
Actually, unless the user knows what they are doing, a more foolproof
way of making this change is to delete the old installation and make
a new one in setup targeting "C:\" instead of "C:\Cygwin".
