cygwin on a network share

Matthias Teege-5
Moin,

I've installed cygwin on a fileserver to share the setup between
different users. The users doesn't have write permissions on the network
share. How do I "redirect" the home and/or tmp directorys to a directory
where the user can write to?

Many thanks
Matthias

You need to use mounts.  See "man mount" for more details.
