I don't believe Larry meant "mount" in that sense.  You can use Cygwin's
mount, like this:

mkdir -p /mnt/darnstein
mount '\\fs-sj1-15\darnstein' /mnt/darnstein

and then set your HOME to /mnt/darnstein.

FYI, using paths with colons in them will probably cause trouble at some
point down the line with some tool or another that treats the colon as the
separator for the remote machine name.
