- Can you explain what you mean by 'partition on which a mounted file system
- exists'? If a filesystem is mounted in a dom0, you can't open that a
- second time for a domU.
/dev/wd01a is mounted in the Dom0. With a DomU, I am using
/dev/wd1b as the disk for the (NetBSD DomU). I'd like to be
able to use /dev/[r]wd1e for a HVM DomU (such as MS-Windows.)
(and /dev/[r]wd1f for a yet another HVM DomU.)
Does that help?
