Just to demonstrate how weird this situation is:

max at pomello [~] $ ls /c
ls: /cygdrive/c/pagefile.sys: No such file or directory
AUTOEXEC.BAT            IO.SYS         RECYCLER                   boot.ini
CONFIG.SYS              MSDOS.SYS      System Volume Information
DevProgs                NTDETECT.COM   Video                      ntldr
Documents and Settings  Program Files  WINDOWS

Note that pagefile.sys doesn't show up in the dirlist!
