Right.  It is there *when* you issue a system mount.  The root
device is not placed there by default.  I thought that is
what you were referring to by the "/ - mount".

The net install does not do this but it has been mentioned that
maybe it should.

This is used when you use the "mount -s" command.

I guess what you're saying is that this key shows up when you
install software even when you're not privileged to do so.  I
guess I'll have to create an unprivileged user account on my
NT system and try this out.  You're probably right.
