To get cygwin-mount.el to do anything useful, you must:
1) Install Cygwin (e.g. in "c:\cygwin")
2) Set `cygwin-mount-cygwin-bin-directory' to "c:\cygwin\bin", or
   add "c:\cygwin\bin" to `exec-path'
3) Eval "(cygwin-mount-activate)

That should setup the file handlers to do the POSIX<->Win32 path translation.
