Did you try to run it with LocalFS / Cygwin, and if so, did you notice 
any peculiarities? I tried this once, and first the start-hbase.sh 
script wouldn't work (missing log files? it looked like some variables 
in paths were expanded in a wrong way), and then when I started the 
master and a regionserver by hand, it would complain about missing map 
files and all requests would time out ... I gave up after that and moved 
to HDFS.
