I've just found that in order to change the root directory to
something other than c:\ that I must use regedt32 and modify the key
I found this bug when trying to explain the process to someone else.
I modified my mounted root directory with `umount / && mount d:/ /'
and found that it did the umount and immediately pointed the / to c:
so that when it executed the mount command mount complained about a
`busy device'. I tried this sequence also under MSDOS with nothing
else running and got the same results.
This used to work in b18, so if I were looking for the problem (which
I won't be) I would look at the code that changed for the addition of
the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE registry entry.
