FWIW (once again) I currently have a dual boot Win98SE/Win2000 machine using
the very same installation of cygwin for *BOTH* OS'es...
-> using the mount command similarily to what was mentioned earlier in this
(Hmm... does that scary thing apply here? ;-)
Things SEEM to be functioning properly. Might be that problems arise if I
use setup.exe from W2K one time, then from W98SE next time... Any thoughts?
i.e. registry entries?
timestamp in [cf]:\cygwin\etc\timestamp ? C: = W98SE, F: = W2K
NOTE HERE: My actual use of cygwin so far has been very limited. Which
might be why I have not found any problems with the above yet. (I'm building
up steam to get going ;)
