Quoting from the page:

"You can avoid some problems by intalling an updated version of bash.
Download bash-3.1-MSYS-1.0.11-1.tar.bz2 from the "MSYS Base
System/Technology Preview: MSYS-1.0.11" section of the MinGW download
 to C:/msys/1.0. From a *Windows* command prompt window, execute the

C:/msys/1.0/bin/bzip2 -d bash-3.1-MSYS-1.0.11-1.tar.bz2

C:/msys/1.0/bin/tar -xf bash-3.1-MSYS-1.0.11-1.tar"

When i enter these commands in dos prompt i get the following error

The windows cannot find the path specified.

I have the file bash-3.1-MSYS-1.0.11-1.tar.bz2 in my C:/msys/1.0 folder.
