First, determine the shell you are using (bash, csh, etc) and then check which 
files are present in your home directory (.profile, .bashrc, etc based on what 
your shell environment is).  Then use an editor like vi or emacs (whichever was 
installed when you built Cygwin) to edit the appropriate file.
