I don't know how you got put onto the c:\cygwin\cygdrive direction...please
just forget about that: it doesn't exist and it is not supposed to.

The C:\Users\kunin directory on windows is equivalent to
/cygdrive/c/Users/kunin on cygwin. (/cygdrive/c is the cygwin version of C:).

But you are certainly going to have to gain some Linux/Unix experience before
running Amber. I recommend the "quick start guide for those more experienced
with windows":
