Ahh, alright, my mistake. Here is that exact command:

Saad Khalid@SaadKhalid-PC ~
$ cat /etc/fstab
cat: /etc/fstab: No such file or directory

I had copied that line from the Getting Started MinGW guide, it had said to add it into the fstab. Should I just remove it or replace it with something else?

Wrong file.  Please, don't tray to resolve the path yourself; I asked
you to show us the output from:

   cat /etc/fstab

not from:

   cat c:/MinGW/msys/1.0/etc/fstab.sample

nor from:

   cat /c/MinGW/msys/1.0/etc/fstab.sample

nor even:

   cat /etc/fstab.sample

Please let MSYS resolve the mapped path itself, as it's designed to, and
we must see the /etc/fstab file, *not* /etc/fstab.sample

This (above) is the correct mapping.

This may, or may not be prudent; (it may interfere with MSYS' own perl
implementation).

> C:\MinGW   /mingw

This looks like a duplicate of the earlier (correct) mapping, but you
should use regular (forward) slashes, not backward slashes.  You should
remove the duplicate; this may be messing up the drive mapping.

Please show us the output from 'echo $PATH', and from 'mount'.
