cygwin has a mount table

here is how it looks on my PC :

C:\Programme\cygwin\usr\X11R6\lib\X11\fonts on /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts 
type system (binmode)
C:\Programme\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (binmode)
C:\Programme\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (binmode)
C:\Programme\cygwin on / type system (binmode)
C:\opt on /opt type system (binmode)
C:\var on /var type system (binmode)
c: on /cygdrive/c type user (binmode,noumount)

my javac seen from cygwin is under /cygdrive/c/j2sdk1.4.1_02/bin/javac

my cvs.exe (the one from cygwin) is under /usr/bin/cvs.exe 
(C:\Programme\cygwin\bin\cvs.exe for Windows)

there is a utility called cygpath which can convert paths :

$ cygpath --windows "/cygdrive/c/j2sdk1.4.1_02/bin"
$ cygpath --unix "c:\j2sdk1.4.1_02\bin"

Apart from that, shell scripting under cygwin is like shell scripting 
under UNIX.

When starting a java program, all command line arguments need to be 
expressed in Windows terms, because Java is not cygwin aware.
