mount on Cygwin is really just for mapping known drives or UNC paths in the
Windows environment to UNIX/POSIX style paths. If you want to map a
different machine's directory into a Cygwin path, you need to have the
capability to reach that machine and path in Windows first (through samba,
NFS, whatever). If you can do this, then you can either use UNC paths or
map the remote path to a drive and mount that using Cygwin mount.
