There is now a three step process: find a free vnd somehow vnconfig (make vnd associated with a file) mount the vnd so what I think would be cool is extending mount_lfs /dev/rwd0e /mnt to mount_lfs vnd:/home/gdt/lfs.image /mnt where mount_msdos grabs a vnd number and does vnconfig, and umount will do vnconfig -u and release. Or perhaps you're trying to solve a different problem?
